About program director
Grant Fisher
Grant Fisher started getting into Hip Hop in high school after he heard the song “Kick Push by Lupe Fiasco.” The song hit so close to home that he was instantaneously sucked into the culture. He started by getting into the music and the dance. Though he had been dancing and a vocalist since he was 5 he had never felt the rush that hip hop gave him. He noticed that there are influences from every other genre of music ingrained in hip hop (a musical melting pot). Realizing the music he listened to directly reflected the culture he lived in spawned a quest to become engraved in hip hop.

One of the first things he learned on his quest was hip hop is comprised of 5 elements; Rap, Beatboxing, Dance, Turntableism, and Grafitti. Some recognize the 6th, and most intangible element, is the Culture. Grant is one of them. Realizing he was one of an extremely small minority of people who planned on learning all they could about hip hop, he sought to give as many people as possible the knowledge he is acquiring.

He is currently teaching classes at NESA in: Rap, Beatboxing, and Dance. Turtablism and graffiti classes will be offered as soon as more people are interested.
