Masterclass with Rennie Harris' RHAW. Saturday, May 3, 2014. 10:30am-12:00pm at Contemporary Dance Theater Studios. In a society where hip hop is often portrayed as a violent, undisciplined counterculture, RHAW deconstructs popular perception of this medium, expanding and challenging the boundaries and definitions of hip hop in general. As hip hop continues to be chosen as the modern generation’s medium of expression, RHPM works to honor its history, explore its ideas, and further its contributions to the surrounding community. $15 for students. Register now
