On March 24th, 2014 – we introduced our pilot Internship Program to the public at the Hip Hop School of Arts (a 501c3 NonProfit Organization located in Pomona, CA) during the Schools For Fools event hosted by Duck-e Ponce (Intercollegiate Breakin’ Tournament).
The Mighty 4 Internship Presentation tour is on its way to build with Universities all over California, Manila, and Hawaii.
Our organization is looking to recruit interns who are passionate about the arts and have a professional demeanor. As a Hip Hop Arts Foundation, we appreciate organized individuals who are also able to demonstrate skill and knowledge of the art forms.
Shortly after the previous presentation, Paul Ruma and Team made their way to Manila, Philippines to meet with G.L., the Director of Culture & Arts Affairs at De La Salle University to discuss collaborative projects between our organization and their University.
It was refreshing to visit the islands and redevelop a global perspective. As an organization that emphasizes “Spreading Cultural Awareness through Art Worldwide”, we make it a point to always stay relevant and continue to learn more about the globalizing social environment.
It was a pleasure to continue to build our relationship with the Philippine Allstars. Paul’s first encounter with the Allstars took place in Las Vegas just last year when they competed at HHI. Paul had learned about their work ethic and the personalities behind this hard working dance group. It was that first encounter that we established a commonality in our vision to act collaboratively for future projects. Stay tuned for more updates on that segment.
On March 30th, 2014 – Paul and Joseph taught the We Got Next Manila workshop at the Allstars Dance School in South Manila. Our workshop had included a crowd of students who were encouraged to critically think about their art form. The class was a very productive one, in which everyone contributed and progressed with one another.
On April 08, 2014th, Paul Ruma had travelled to Honolulu to present the internship opportunities to a group of Ethnic Studies students at the University of Hawaii. With the enthusiastic crowd of students at this presentation, we are looking forward to meeting with the rest of the Universities on the tour schedule.
