ABOUT THE WORKSHOP:
This musical workshop introduces you to the basics of Hip Hop Improv: the combination of free-style rapping and scene work. North Coast instructor, Rachel Rosenthal, will guide you through the basics of free-styling--which, instead of forcing the rhyme, is all about gaining access to the rhymes that have been in your catalogue since you were a kid. Learn how to set yourself up, find your flow, and weave your rapped verses into your improv scene work! It'll be the most fun 3 hours you've had in a long time.
