The August Wilson African American Cultural Center presents its first Hip-Hop Camp in four parts which will include, the art of songwriting and creation, dj’ing, graffiti art, and breakdancing.
The first part of camp will begin with the art of songwriting and creation.
In the Booth is a four-part session that will focus on the history and evolution of hip-hop, lyrical content and artistic responsibility, and discover the connection between August Wilson and hip-hop music. In the Booth will be taught by Educator, Emmanuel DeAnda, a music pioneer from Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. Over the course of the camp, students will develop their own song by writing lyrics that include a verse, chorus, and bridge and will select a beat produced by our Educator to create a final piece that will be performed and showcased at our December 4th Holiday Community Day. This camp is suitable for high school students, ages 14-18 years of age.
The camp is virtual with an in-person performance in December. All registrants for this camp will receive an email with a Zoom link and instructions 3 days prior to each session. In addition, each registrant will receive a swag bag that will include materials needed for the camp.
The camp sessions will be held on the following days:
