Kids African Drum and Dance
In this class children will explore the basics of African rhythms, through drumming, singing and dancing. Kids will learn hand drumming techniques and a traditional rhythm of the West African djembe and djun djun drums, as well as some of the cultural background of the drums.
They will play with call and response rhythm games, rhythm dialogues, drum imagination games, individual playing, as well as group drum jams. Kids will also learn to move to the rhythms and practice some basic African dance steps.
Each week a different African region will be the focus of the lesson. A new instrument, dance step and chant will be introduced corresponding to that week’s region.
