After learning some dance moves from our Dance with Africa workshop, stay and enjoy and introduction to drum circles. Learn basic rhythms and mnemonic devices to remember those patterns- and then take part in a wonderful experience! Caution- drumming has been know to cause random outbursts of joy and enthusiasm for life, so be prepared to have a big smile on your face!
Ages: All are Welcome Materials: Please bring anything to drum on- a tupperware container, your own conga drum, or anything! Be creative. If you have drum sticks, bring those, too.
