Bring your crew for some group pieces! A Squad slam is where you can perform with multiple people on stage. Almost anything goes: choreography, call-and-response, planting your squad in the audience… whatever creative performance experiments you want to run! The winners, as always, will receive a smug sense of self-satisfaction!
