Freestyle Improvised Hip-Hop with Twinprov

Buck and Clint of rap-comedy duo Twinprov have taken their high-speed full-length hip-hop long form improv Rapsody to festivals from Chicago to Austin to Hawaii. If two guys from small town Oklahoma can, you can too! Whether you’re new to rap, beatbox, or poetry, or just wanting a new and exciting improv challenge, this is the workshop for you. We’ll take the mystery and fear out of rhyme, flow, hooks, imagery, beatboxing and more with fun foundational drills and games that build skills you’ll use every time you need to improvise lyrics, from hip-hop to Broadway to Shakespeare to slam poetry. Learn how to apply your improv character, acting, and story skills to be fascinating even without rhyme. By the end of the workshop you’ll be crafting whole songs on your own and kicking it with a posse. Unh!
