What is a slam? A slam is a competitive art event in which poets/rappers/singers/ spoken word artists/speakers take turns to perform in speedy 30 sec -1min segments before an open circle and a panel of judges. While formats can vary, slams are often loud and lively, with audience participation, cheering and dramatic delivery. Hip-hop music and urban culture are strong influences.
What is a cypher? A cypher is a freestyle dance jam where an open circle is created and people take turns dancing in the center in speedy 30 sec -1min segments. DJs will provide the music and audience participation of cheering is encouraged. The cypher (or cipher) has deep, long-standing cultural roots in hip hop culture, African tradition and religious beliefs.
