Class Registration

African Drum & Dance TOGETHER!

The Youth West African Drumming class & the Saturday West African Jam will coordinate with the new African Dance class taught by Christan Poret to teach the rhythms for the song that the students are dancing to. This will give the dancers and drummers the chance to work together for a true live performance!
