Incorporated in 2010, BEAT produces cross-disciplinary programs led by world-class professional artists that teach the arts of beatboxing, breakdancing, music production, creative writing, MC’ing, and performing live. Our three main programs are: BEAT Explorers (music production), BEAT Breakers (B-boy/B-girl breakdancing) and BEAT Rockers (beatboxing). In addition, BEAT provides services, such as T3 (Teach-the-Teacher), as well as PD (Professional Development using “Cypher-based” pedagogy).

All BEAT programming is carefully crafted for maximum engagement and retention through inspiring artistry and committed mentorship. Through the axiom of art and creative-expression, supported by research and technology, BEAT provides solutions to real-world problems such as depression, violence, obesity, and communication disorders.

“BEAT Global is pioneering the art of beatboxing as a tool for people with disabilities to creatively express themselves.”

We’ve worked with the Lavelle School for the Blind (since 2010), Quality Services for the Autism Community (QSAC), and Center for Community Alternatives for a music program at Rikers Island Correctional Facility.

Our hybrid programs, professional development and artist trainings, performance showcases, and workshops exist in a variety of formats across New York City through partnerships with the local government, community organizations, public and private educational institutions.
BEAT’s in-depth reach, impact and influence over the past decade has extended to international organizations, such as the United Nations, who nominated BEAT for a 2018 Sustainable Development Goal (SDG) Action Award for global impact and invited BEAT to perform music showcases and conduct workshops at the 2018 Global Festival of Action in Bonn, Germany. BEAT also partnered with the UNHCR to conduct B-Boy and B-Girl Dance Workshops with over 500 youth in the Za’atari refugee camp in Jordan in August 2018.
