With a very successful, exciting and FUN drum camp behind us, we are ready to start thinking about more opportunities to drum over the summer while regular classes are not happening.
In August, three chances to pull out the drums and get into the groove!
August 10th, through Courtenay Recreation, a free taste of DRUMS ALIVE! and African Hand Drumming (for newbies). So if you've never tried out Drums Alive! before (combination of fitness class/dance and drumming - on huge balls with sticks!), this is your chance to get a taste. The drumming class is meant as an intro to hand drumming for folks who haven't taken classes with me before - so tell your friends and neighbours to come out and give it a try! The fun starts at 10 am - phone CRA @ 250 338 1000 FMI and to pre-register. Space limited.
August 10th, Royston Hall, 6 - 7 pm - Monica's Summer Drum Class, everyone welcome (but we will not be reviewing beginner material). Another opportunity to get into the groove; we will be working on putting 3 of our favourite rhythms together in a fun arrangement. Drop in, suggested $10 min.
August 17th, Royston Hall, West African Drum and Dance with (my teacher and good friends) Kocassale Dioubate (Koca) and Sasha Belle
