Unexpected Productions’ ensemble members, Dre Anderson, and Tiffany Swanson have created an exciting new class at the Improv School, The Fundamentals of Improvised Hip Hop. Dre has been creating rhythm and poetry while collaborating with Seattle artists for over a decade. Seen hosting open mics throughout the Sound, Dre loves sharing his love for freestyle and technique with people to help them unlock their potential. Tiffany Swanson, creator and director of An Improvised Hip Hopera (featured at the Alaska Improv Festival, Re-Bar, and the Rendezvous) and long-time teacher at The Improv School, loves combining the tenants of improvisation with hip-hop to create original songs, characters and stories.

Special guest teacher, Danny Lacker, talented beat-boxer will bring the basics of beat-boxing to one of the sessions. By the end of this series, you will be equipped to create original improvised songs, incorporate it into your improv stories and characters, and most of all, have a TON of fun!
