    Performance Length: 60 minutes

    The Secret Agency is an interactive and inspiring hip-hop experience for students everywhere. Tapping into their Grammy-winning original catalog from rapper and hip hop artist, Secret Agent 23 Skidoo, this electric ensemble combines the highly literate lyrical style of golden age hip-hop with soul, funk, reggae and storytelling.

    Hip-hop has always been about bringing different elements together to create a powerful artistic union. The Secret Agency represents this through the diversity of its members. Onstage, rhymers with deft styles and deep vocabulary trade verses with singers whose harmonies are as sweet as they are strong. The dancers’ acrobatic moves mesmerize the crowd and keep kids on their feet during dance contests and jams. It’s a high-energy show that encourages kids to be proud of their own unique individuality, and remind grownups how exciting, scary, and beautiful it is to be young.
