This open elective runs Monday 5th October 7 – 9.30pm BST
Open – A class for anyone, regardless of their improv experience. Although more experienced players are of course welcome, the content does not require any prior improv knowledge.
In this workshop we’ll cover the basic building blocks of improvised rap, how to find your flow, how to successfully rhyme and land punchlines in improvised songs, all while keeping things fun, stress-free, chill and relaxed.
The session involves a lot of writing with pen and paper, and not a huge amount of standing up alone and rapping on the spot. The atmosphere is always very relaxed, fun and supportive!
Rapping is one of the things improvisers find most terrifying – this workshop will show you how to turn that fear into freedom and fun.
A hugely useful skill for anyone currently improvising musicals and songs, or looking to further their musical improv repertoire.
NB: Our electives frequently sell out, but do not despair if this class has. You have not missed your shot. If enough people join the waiting list, we are often able to put the same class on a few days after or in parallel. So if you were excited, join up and we will be in touch.
(Monday) 7:00 pm - 9:30 pm BST
