What's Included

Explore the world of rhythm by learning drumming and percussive dance from two of the areaâs master teachers! Each day kicks off with a drum circle, in which participants learn rhythmic patterns and exciting drum ensembles. Using rhythm games, echoing, call and response, and sound exploration, drummers gain a sense of confidence and spontaneity. Students will then take to the floor to experience the thrill of making rhythms with their feet and bodies. They will be introduced to a multi-cultural array of percussive dance traditions, including South African boot dance, Irish dance, African American hambone and more. Fun and easy dance improvisation activities that encourage each studentâs creativity are also included. Both boys and girls will love this exploration of the world of rhythm! Roots ânâ Rhythm is taught by Elizabeth Melvin, Director, Drum It Up program and Eileen Carson Schatz, Founding Artistic Director of Footworks Percussive Dance Ensemble.
