Last week, we held our annual post-class party to give thanks to everyone in our drum and dance community and to give blessings to Namory as he prepares for his winter visit to his home in Guinea. It was wonderful to share food, conversation, and laughter with one another.
Namory continues to work on his Hamana Arts Center project, building a school for drum and dance education outside of Conakry in Guinea. Please support him as he works to make this dream come true.
Reminders: There are no drum and dance classes in Kittery this Thursday, November 28. Namory will be here for two more weeks, December 5 and 12, before he heads off to Guinea until February. Through the winter, drum class will be taught by students from Namory’s drum class.
There are no classes on Thursday, December 26, but after that classes will continue each week, weather dependent. Cancellations will be listed here and our Facebook group in the case of inclement weather.
Drop-ins are welcome at drum or dance anytime. If you need to borrow a djembe for drum class, please let us know in advance.
