Dynamic workshops and engaging panels led by some of the industry's nmost well-respected names will immerse participants in tan unforgettable three days of hip-hop masterclasses. Check out a few of the incredible sessions available to join.

The Famous Apollo Theater

Rehearse at the Apollo Theater

Since opening its doors in 1914 and introducing the first Amateur Night contests in 1934, the Apollo has played a major role in the emergence of jazz, swing, bebop, R&B, gospel, blues, and soul-all quintessentially American music genres.  A catalyst for new artists and audiences, the Apollo is a partner in the projection of the African American narrative and its role in the development of American and global culture.

If you are interested in participating in one of the Apollo's signature Amateur Nights, you'll have the opportunity to sign up to perform on Saturday, July 8th. The Iconic talent competition has launched the careers of countless legendary artists, like Ella Fitzgerald, Luther Vandross, Lauryn Hill, H.E.R., Machine Gun Kelly, Jazmine Sullivan, and more.

Freestyle Takeover
at Carnegie Hall

Paying homage to hip-hop's roots in the Bronx, Freestyle Lab unites poppers, lockers, b-boyers, freestylers, beatboxers, rappers, and artists of all kinds for an all-out performance on one of the world's biggest stages.

Carnegie Hall holds a special place in the hearts of performers everywhere.  This versatile venue goes far beyond its roots as a classical music hall, doing its part to legitimize him-hop as an art form by playing host to groundbreaking artists like Jay-Z and D'Nice over the years.  Hip-hop has transcended into both a pillar of entertainment and a symbol of empowerment-for proof, look no further than Carnegie Hall.

During your time in New York, you'll learn how to take your hip-hop performance from the street to the studio to the stage.
Immersive skill-building sessions across the city prepare you for an original production directed by some very special surprise guests!

Don't stall-save those moves for the dance floor.
