About our program

NJPAC’s Hip Hop program celebrates authenticity. We acknowledge, embrace and respect everyone’s genius. We believe our affirming community contributes to peace, love & unity.

Mission Statement

NJPAC’s Hip Hop Pathway programs are experimental & experiential learning communities designed to discover, embrace, and utilize knowledge of self through art-making, learning about Hip Hop culture, and career exploration.

This season all hip hop programs will be offered both virtually and in person. You can sign up for either option at the beginning of the trimester. Hip hop students have the opportunity to experiment and learn more about the technology associated with their Saturday training in a tech lab every Tuesday from 6 – 7:30 PM.

Summer Camp

Summer camp: Jul 11 – Aug 5
This summer, we’ll discover all the different art forms that make up the world of Hip Hop. We’ll dance, emcee, DJ, make beats and produce music. We’ll learn how to create our own podcasts, graffiti and graphic design. Anyone can participate, regardless of experience level (intro to advanced) or location (in-person or virtual).

*Please know that here at NJPAC Arts Education we are working hard to accommodate your program request to the best of our ability. If for any reason we are unable to meet that request we will be in touch as soon as possible to discuss how we can best serve your school/community. Approval for in person programs is based upon NJPAC guidelines and subject to change.*


IN THE MIX is a virtual clubhouse for students across all NJPAC programs. Talk about what’s going on in your lives and around the world. Explore the issues that matter to you, from climate change to social justice. Make friends, make art, and make a difference! More details to come upon registration.

Your safety is our priority. Since the pandemic began, we’ve collaborated with medical professionals, invested in building upgrades, and put new procedures in place to protect our guests, staff, volunteers, and faculty. Just a few things you might want to know: Masks are welcomed but not required. Faculty and staff are required to be vaccinated. Students 5+ must show proof of vaccination prior to the first in-person session. Arts Education programs are at reduced capacity to allow for safe distancing. And you can feel safe knowing our HVAC system meets industry standards for virus ionization and filtration and our cleaning processes follow all CDC recommendations. Further details on program protocols are here and specific details on procedures are shared upon completed registration and during program orientations.

Tuition Information, Refund Policy and Attendance

Tuition must be paid in full or a payment plan must be in place prior to the first session.
If a student withdraws prior to the start of the first session, a full refund will be issued.
If a student withdraws after attending the second session, a 50% refund will be issued.
If a student withdraws after attending three sessions, all tuition payments are non-refundable.
*Important* If a student is absent for the first two sessions without any communication or advance notification, they will be automatically withdrawn from the program and the full tuition payment will be forfeited. This allows for additional students to join the program from the waitlist.
