We’re called the Beatbox Academy. But we’re a lot more than just beatboxing. Some people come and never beatbox. But it’s a place to express yourself, meet people, have something to do, learn those skills, collaborative skills, talking to each other, get creative –and it’s somewhere to go just to be positive.
