Hip Hip Improv Masterclass with NYC’s North Coast

Wanna learn to be the next Lin Manuel Miranda? Want to improvise the next Hamilton? We’re excited to be bringing New York City’s premier hip hop improv comedy team, North Coast to teach the fundamentals of hip hop musical improv in April. From scenework, rapping, forms and beatboxing this should be a great intensive. We’ve seen North Coast in action in New York and they are phenomenal.

Saturday 1-2nd April 10-5 pm – Hip Hip Improv Masterclass £100
Book now

North Coast are a unique collaboration of improvisational comedy, hip hop, beatboxing, and music. This musical improv workshop will get even the most beginner performers comfortable and confident with freestyle rapping and will teach you how to really drill into the deal of your scene and its characters.  Learn how to set yourself up, find your flow, and weave your rapped verses in and out of your improv scene-work.

Then take your hip-hop improv skills to the next level using polysyllabic rhymes, second beats, and dynamic scene structures. Trust your instincts and make bold choices that pay off through support work. Students will be expected to make choices with form, flow, and expand their repertoire of characters. Good scene work is imperative to good musical improv; lets drill into the deal of your scene and its characters so you can learn how to rap from a place that matters.

This workshop will also take you through the fundamentals of beatboxing technique, and how to apply those techniques to your own ideas. From boots-and–cuts to BTK’s basics, you’ll walk out feeling confident enough to show off your skills solo, or collaborate with any freestyle cypher you encounter.

The Slacker with UCB’s Anthony Appruzze

The Slacker is a fast paced, stream of consciousness form that truly explores “if this is true, what else is true” in both micro and macro ways.
