Introduction
The Kids Make Hip Hop pilot project, created by Kathleen Isaac and Doug Fox, took place in Queens, New York in July 2009. This project, with the participation of hip hop dancer and educator Carlos Cordova, represented our initial exploration of a new educational approach and framework for child-centered dance-making that integrates proven dance teaching methodologies and practices with the Internet, digital technologies and social media.
