If the thought of a rap battle has your knees weak and arms heavy, this workshop can turn things around. Breaking down this seemingly off-the-cuff art form into teachable techniques, you will learn that it is more formula than freestyle. From writing rhyme charts to fabricating fill-in-the-blank lines, the appearance of improv can be backed by hours of preparation. This workshop is a glimpse into some activities and support materials that will give you and your students the ability to lose yourself in the music. Gradually scaling up from the foundation, this structure is meant to cater to even the most hesitant performers. The activity-heavy nature of the session will give you practical exercises to bring back to the classroom, starting with stress-free behind-the-scenes work and moving closer to center stage with each step.
