300 NE Second Ave., Miami, Fl 33132 United States
Lower plaza of Children’s Alley
Join PATH (Preserving, Archiving & Teaching Hip Hop, Inc.) for a participatory experience centered around the five main creative elements of Hip Hop – Bboy/Bgirl Dance,
DJ, Graffiti Art, MC/Rap, and Knowledge. At the end of the journey, test that knowledge and graduate as a “Hip Hop Scholar in Training.” Enjoy a showcase featuring live performances by local artists, including PATH emerging artists & alumni.
Bboy/Bgirl or Breakdancing Stop: Join Hip Hop dancers to learn hot Hip Hop moves, then hit the dancefloor and demonstrate.
DJ / Music Production Stop: Watch a DJ spin live. Listen to vinyl at designated listening stations and learn about sampling. Explore DJ technology from vinyl to Serato and record your own sounds at a looping station.
Urban Art / Graffiti Stop: Meet and work with graffiti artists. Learn graffiti art styles and create your own “tag.”
MC / Recording Stop: Make your mark on a “word wall” to inspire others to write words, bars (musical phrases) or symbols that convey positive messages. Afterward, record your own bars at a recording station run by PATH alumni.
Get LIT(erature) Lounge: Check out PATH’s collection of Hip Hop literature and videos from around the world.
