URPerforming!

The Hip Hop Edition

(This year we're doing URP! in Spring '20!)

Are you a performer of any kind who uses hip hop in any form? Do you rap, use spoken word, dance to hip hop beatz, beatbox, play an instrument, juggle, contort, do magic, or acrobatics, or ventriloquize, or... have any skill you perform in public that makes you remarkable and that references or uses hip hop in its many forms? If the answer is YES! then we want to see it and to see you in URPerforming! The Hip Hop Edition!

We're seeking individual performers (or small groups of performers—three people or fewer) of all stripes and in any discipline to pit their talents and compete for cash prizes totaling $1000! Audience voting and celebrity judges round out the evening!

Interested in strutting your stuff?

Sign up to perform today!

The deadline for entry is Monday, February 24, 2020.
