PUSH and Zaccho offer H.A.R.T.


The Hip Hop Artist Residency & Training (HART) Program is a 4-month residency that will provide training and performance opportunities to 8 Black performing artists ages 18 and up with aspirations to build a career in Hip Hop and the performing arts. This culturally enriching program will also address how racial equity and social justice issues impact the Hip Hop and performing arts community. The HART Program will culminate in the creation of a collaborative performance led by the HART Resident Artists at the Bayview Opera House.

All Bay Area Black performing artists ages 18 and up are eligible to apply and then chosen by a panel of experienced Black performing arts professionals. Each HART Resident will have an opportunity to engage in their particular area of interest or expertise, focusing on the three tenets of Hip Hop: dance, music, and visual art. Placement in one of the three tenets of Hip Hop is determined by the candidate’s strengths and progress throughout the program.

Each HART Resident Artist will receive:

– A stipend of $2,000
– 100 hours of studio time
– Mentorship and Workshops
– Social Media skill building

HART is a collaborative partnership between Zaccho Dance Theatre and PUSH Dance Company, and funded by the City of San Francisco’s Dream Keeper Initiative.
