About

Welcome to 519 School of Hip Hop
- London's #1 resource for #allthingshiphop


The WHAT: What's our mission?
We are a virtual learning platform with an aim to make hip hop education accessible for London & beyond - one school, one student at a time.
We specialize in dynamic, hands-on learning experience for students through 4 artistic elements, AMPDart (graffiti), music (DJing & producing), poetry (spoken word, rap & public speaking) and dance (grooves, breaking AKA breakdance, popping).
Although dance education is our main focus for our students, we emphasize the importance of understanding as well as the integration of all artistic elements to learn the culture as a whole. 

The WHO: Who's behind this mission?
This program is led by Jim Francis Xavier (JFX) Han, a professional dancer, artist, educator with the support of Ill At Will crew and the community cultivated through Stay Hungry & Humble iniative. We are a team of artrepreneurs (artist entrepreneurs) driven by passion and connected through a collective vision. We work closely with local schools, London Arts Council and various youth based organizations to offer hip hop education & entertainment for the public.

The 
WHY: Why do we do what we do & Why now?
We do it for the love of hip hop. We believe in the educational value of this street culture, and want to do our part by giving back and spreading the positive messages of hip hop while empowering today's youth.
Our initial plan was to open the doors to 519 School of Hip Hop in the month of May in 2020. We have been developing the curriculum since the summer of 2019 with our first hip hop summer camp where we introduced all 4 elements of hip hop to our participating students.
However, due to the COVID-19 outbreak, we have decided to make our program accessible online and offer our students unforgettable virtual classroom experience through hip hop.

The HOW: How can you support this movement?
As a supporter of this movement, you recognize the positive impact that SHH has on education, leadership and health for not only youth, but also the community at large.
