Have you seen DJs at events or in movies and wondered, “how do they do that?!”
Join MoPOP for a special exploration of the art of hip-hop DJing with DJ Lady Love (Denise Briggs), one of the first female DJs in New York City in the 1970s. Together, we’ll investigate hip-hop DJ history from Grandmaster Flash to Grand Wizzard Theodore and more and learn the basics of hip-hop DJing. From exploring the set to counting beats, scratching, and picking your DJ name, you’ll leave this program with a deeper understanding of the roots of hip hop DJing and the skills to start practicing at home.
Open to anyone ages 7-14 who is schooling at home. MoPOP will provide controllers and DJ software for participants to share during the program.
