The Heal The Hood Project Practical Hip Hop School
The Heal The Hood Project Practical Hip Hop School will be celebrating their very first third year graduates.
Emile YX? originally started the free class back in 2005 and he didn’t quite expect the commitment and dedication he got from some of his students.
One such student is Stefan. EmileYX? and the Heal The Hood Project offered him the opportunity to earn while he learns as part of the Heal The Hood Project Practical School known as Mixed Mense.
Stefan was sent to Sweden to speak about the Heal The Hoods work and the documentary that was played in Stockholm. In their first year, they were taught how to teach break-dancing to other students. This aspect of the education they received and then passed on, was exciting and engaging in the way that dance and movement has the great ability to bring people together.
The syllabus was created by Emile YX? and his new employees started teaching at various schools. He also got Mixed Mense to do some work for the Department of Social Development for their daily classes. A German intern shot a dance video with them in Cape Town and uploaded it to Youtube titling it, Mixed Mense dancing in Cape Town City.
At the start of 2015, Emile released his sixth solo album and Mixed Mense assisted in the performance and launch at Alive Café. Emile & Mixed Mense were part of a schools tour and performance with the YMCA & Kraaifontein Community earlier this year too. There will be a YMCA Kraaifontein documentary about their work released on the 6th June 2015. Emile just returned from Bushfire Festival in Swaziland, completed the second run of a play he wrote called “Break” at The Artscape and this week he heads off to Joburg to be a part of this year’s Moshito Music Conference and Exhibition.
