The Village Culture Collective

YOUTH HIP HOP SUMMER INTENSIVE

Session 1: August 2-6 

Session 2: August  9-13

AGES 7-17

Gibney is thrilled to partner with The Village Culture Collective (VCC) to offer a summer program designed to introduce young minds to the ideas and possibilities that were created out of the street and club dances that are collectively known as Hip Hop. Each week we will offer different themes for the students to explore, giving a 360 degree view of the culture and the roles involved in its development and proliferation.

Join us for this one- or two-week, half-day program that will offer participants the chance to:

  • Find their own voices and build self-confidence
  • Learn how to work well in a group while maintaining their individuality
  • Explore the many aspects of Hip Hop dance with renowned faculty members
  • Have FUN!!

The VCC collectively have over 40 years of experience in the street and club dance community. They have created projects such as Next Generation, The Ladies of Hip Hop Festival, I Love My Hood, Kids Breaking League, and other world-renowned programs and events in the New York City area.

Register

Registration for the Youth Hip Hop Summer Intensive is open now! All applications must be received by Friday, April 30 at 11:59 pm EDT.

After completing the application form, you will receive a link to complete your registration and submit payment to reserve your spot in the intensive. Take a look at our step-by-step guide, here in both English and Spanish to help you successfully register your kids and teens!

Keeping Your Children Safe

We have upgraded our HVAC at 280 to MERV-13 filters and we have optimized our fresh air intake by disinfecting our AC units, supplying additional supply air fans, and opening the windows.

These guidelines would also allow for in-person classes to resume at 33% capacity. We hope to launch a schedule of hybrid classes in late spring 2021.
