Hip Hop: From Garage to Great with Libby Montilla


This intensive school holiday workshop with Western Sydney hip hop artist Libby Montilla is ideal for aspiring hip hop artists who’ve started in the garage at home and are also into hip hop and tutting. Participants will work on hip hop and tutting dance skills while also exploring the capacity to fuse hip hop with music and the action and creativity that they may find in their garage (or any room in the house). They’ll bring what they’ve learnt together for a showing for family and friends at the end of the workshop.

Participants can attend IN PERSON (limited places) or ONLINE. Zoom links will be provided at least 24 hours prior to each session.

Recommended ages: 8 – 12 years

Is it ok if the name on our Zoom account doesn’t match the person who attends?

Yes. We do recommend that the person participating is on the Zoom account, so that our Workshop Leader can identify them by their initials during the workshop if required. However, it is not essential.

How are the workshops structured?

The Workshop Leader will introduce each workshop, providing instruction and ensuring that you have safe space to dance in.

There will also be a Q&A session at the end of each workshop where people can ask more questions.
