Performance, free class, and workshops all coming up soon!
West Africa Day Fundraiser
On September 21, Namory and I as well as several members of our weekly drum and dance classes will be participating in Rain for the Sahel and Sahara’s West Africa Day at Red Hook Brewery in Portsmouth. We will be performing several rhythms and their accompanying dances which we’ve been working learning for weeks. We will also be teaching at least one dance. Three other groups will be performing as well: Randy Armstrong World Fusion Ensemble, Akwaaba Ensemble, and Federator No 1. We’re thrilled to be part of the day and hope you come and join in the dancing with us! Admission is just $18 for adults and $8 for children for five hours of music and dance!
On Thursday, September 25 drum class with Namory and dance class with me will be FREE!
Have you been thinking of trying a drum or dance class, but haven’t yet made it? Have you been to class, but not for months? Do you come to class every week that you can? No matter how you answered those questions, we hope you join us on September 25! And class is free!
