TEACHING DEVELOPMENTS

 

Developed the Acting Class “Expression Through Hip Hop”. It is a class that is geared towards using Hip Hop to bring forth boldness, fun, personality, point of view, immediacy and activism inside of each student. Thus, developing a more intense, a more alive, a more active, a more specific, a more personal, a more dynamic, and a more present actor.
