ImproMunichorn is thrilled to welcome Trent Pancy back to Munich for a one day only Improv Rap workshop! This 6 hour workshop runs from 11:00 to 18:00 with a 1hr. lunch break.
Freestyle is a quick and dirty introduction to everything you need to know when it comes to rap and improvisation. This workshop focuses on the basics of rhyming, rhythm, beatboxing, and everything else you need to step up and own the stage. We’ll also jump into scenes to discover how much fun it can be to incorporate rap (or any rhyme skills) into your short form AND long form improvisation. It doesn’t matter how much you know about hip hop, whether you can rhyme, or how well you speak English. This workshop is for anyone who wants to add a little flow to their improv.
Along with having a ton of fun, participants will:
– Learn how to release their inner MC
– Get comfortable Rapping & Freestyling
– Develop their Rhyming Skills
– Incorporate Rap & Freestyle into scenes
