R.A.P. Camp: Rhythm and Performance
RAP Camp is a weekly class best suited for students in the 1st through 6th grade.
Campers learn memorization and performance skills alongside real life recording artists @b2andbrave - and the team that creates
Each class focuses on a different R.A.P. skill:
1. Character Development
3. Pseudonym Creation
4. Speed Reading
5. Rhyme Development
6. Stage Presence
- all in a fun and experiential way.
"We believe that the best way to learn is to do, so each student will get a chance to be in the spotlight." says Producer Brandon Williamson.
Weekly camp sessions are 90 mins on Saturdays between 10am - 2pm exact start time based on group assignment.
Each session of RAP camp will empower students with the skills needed to confidently perform with spoken word, movement, and music - but the sessions are intended to be attended in 8 week blocks that culminate in a live musical performance.
"Our mindset is that rap is a tool and an instrument that can be used to tell a story.
Campers dive into the science of rap music and learn how to deliver a story with confidence, annunciation, and character - ending the 8 week session with a LIVE performance!
There is one session per week, with supplemental sessions and private parties available. There will be a MAXIMUM of 10 students per class session.
Sessions take place at Richard Rioux Park. Next session begins 1/24/23 - 3/11/23
