Beat Breakers in its second semester and introduces a second school, BSSWA!

We’re proud to announce that Beat Breakers is back in session at the Bronx Academy of Letters in its second semester, and has also added a new school to its roster, the Bronx Studio School for Writers and Artists (BSSWA), where fifteen students have been accepted for the program!

We’re super excited to see how the continuing students expand on their skills, and how the new students take to the training. We’ll be tracking their progress so stay tuned for updates…
