Intro To Hip Hop Improv Comedy Workshop! (DCM Special)

I honestly don’t have enough good things to say about this class. I was fortunate enough to have Rachel Rosenthal and Doug Widick as my teachers and those two are wonderful people who are obvious hip-hop/improv heads. The class, without a doubt, made me a better freestyler and a better improvisor. Two for one! I can’t recommend this class enough if you’re a person who likes having a good time and becoming awesome.

We are so looking forward to this weekend and hanging out with all of the amazing talent coming in from around the country to participate in the Del Close Marathon at UCB! North Coast has been playing in the festival for many years and will do so again this year on Saturday night! In celebration of DCM, we'd like to offer a workshop to anyone who'll be around this weekend. This workshop is NOT in any way affiliated officially with DCM.
