Cultural Diversity through Self-Expression
Rooted in the music and dance of the African diaspora, our youth programs are designed to educate, empower, and entertain.
Specifically guided to each age group, we are happy to design a custom program that fits your group’s needs. Alternately, choose from our menu: Drum Class, Dance Class, Assembly Program, or Drums of the World. Our world class, seasoned teaching artists and performers are master drummers and dancers from Africa and its diaspora. We love African drumming and dancing, as it promotes cultural diversity and confidence through self-expression. We know that this music and dance has the capacity to transform every child’s life.
