Join us to investigate stories from the cipher: What is the meaning of the cipher beyond the dance that we see, and what are the stories of the people that come to the hip-hop dance circle?

In this 6-hour, in-person hip-hop workshop, participants will explore hip-hop dance to understand that hip-hop stories come from awareness of one’s lived experiences. Attendees will explore their own lived experiences and that of their students to educate themselves and make personally meaningful dances from their hip-hop stories. We will investigate the multifaceted motivations and inspirations of hip-hop artists and contributors, including the impact of hip-hop on personal expression and performance. Guest Artists will share their personal stories and motivations with participants to help shape and guide key questions for personal and student-centered exploration. The workshop includes group discussions and feedback, collaborative dance making, and lesson planning activities. Participants will leave with a variety of hip-hop inspired activities for their classroom related to personal storytelling and art making.
