Have you ever seen the classic film about freestyling “8Mile”? This movie is ideal for anyone trying to learn more about the art of Improvised Poetry/Rap. However, it will only show you how it looks when a professional does it, not necessarily how to develop the craft. In this workshop, we will specialize in rhyming & flowing, and gaining a deeper understanding of this musical art form. Your Hip Hop questions will be answered, you will soon dazzle crowds, and impress significant others. We are all human beings- so if I can do it, so can you!
Larry Dorsey Jr. is a storyteller born & raised in San Francisco. He is known in the city for his adventurous lifestyle and as a radio personality for the premiere Hip Hop station in the Bay Area (106kmel #iHeartMedia).
Before being involved with BATS, he crafted his talents in various forms of performance arts. Music/Poetry (shout out to Youth Speaks) has been a part of his life since childhood. He is also a life long joke teller, first learning the craft of Stand-up while working security at The Punchline/Cobbs Comedy Clubs, finally hitting the stage after taking a workshop at the famous San Jose Improv.
He graduated from SF State University majoring in Creative Writing, Academy of Art University majoring in Motion Pictures & Television, and the Meisner Technique Studio acting program. He has also studied at different theaters around the Bay (i.e. the A.C.T.)- in classes ranging from clowning to public speaking.
His free time is dedicated to creating content for social media- follow him to learn more or to check out some of his art: (url) @larrydorseyjr
