Class Description

Calling all hip hop fans!

This interactive show is the perfect blend of a Holiday classic and hip hop musical. Come watch a live interactive story-telling adventure, based on Dr. Seuss's classic, The Grinch Who Stole Christmas. This class will take you on a hip hop adventure through the story while also helping us examine the Grinch and his feelings.

This fun yet quirky show involves craft project, writing assignment and build on foundations of social emotional learning skills Students will be guided through a lesson on how to write their own free-style as a cathartic outlet to share their feelings and express themselves.

Students will walk away having created: songs, their own movement, and collaborate with other students along the way!

Meet The Artist

Elise Ramaekers


I'm Elise and I'm a Teaching Artist/Actor/Improvisor based in New York City. I received my BFA in Theatre Performance with a minor in Arts Management from Long Island University Post. I have also studied and performed Long-form, Short-form, and Musical Improv at iO Chicago, The Second City Chicago, The Annoyance Chicago, and The Magnet in NYC.

I'm currently a Teaching Artist with Manhattan Youth teaching Improv and Theatre in their after school programs. I'm a company member of Theatre Nerds/Neon Entertainment's Murder Mystery company touring around the east coast to college campus' and philanthropic events.

In 2019 I created and directed my own combination Improv/Theatre piece called Eating Garbage Graciously where I combined Verbatim Theatre and Improv to create my own Improv form.

I have an immense love for teaching the arts and the vast benefits they can have one one's social abilities, creativity, imagination, and confidence. In all of my classes I try to stress the importance of having a willingness to fail and an eagerness for artistic risk and discovery! I enjoy cats, chocolate chip cookies, and long long walks. Excited to create with you all!
