The dance and drum workshops are the core of this residency program. Watch your students work together as they discover West African music from the source. Drum workshops are taught by a master drummer from Africa, providing hands-on West African drumming instruction focused on technique and rhythms. Professional African dancers teach a high-energy dance class promoting balance, agility and coordination with live musical accompaniment.

These workshops are unforgetable and truly empowering for students, who will break out of their shells and experience a sense of community with their peers.
