Feb 21/22 West End - Drum/Dance courses start

Posted on behalf of Talkin' the Drum...

6 week beginners drum course and 6 week dance course

We're structuring the drum/dance course thang differently this year. Its time for Josie to do a dedicated dance course. So rather than doing the drum and dance as one course we're holding them back to back on the same evening. For the drummers out there, I want to tell you that learning the dance is incredible for improving your drumming. Also, I believe that when we talk about the 'healing power of the drum' it actually largely refers to the healing power of dance, that good drumming allows people to dance in a way that helps shed layers of resistance and blockage. Having said that I certainly want to add that playing rhythm is also very good for one's state of being, it can be very healing on subtle levels.

Wed nights Feb 21st, 28th, Mar 7th, 14th, 21st and 28th.
