African Drumming

Every person gets his or her own instrument to play. For groups up to 40 people we can provide a drum for each player. We can also bring shakers, bells and various other hand held percussion instruments to the drumming orchestra. Playing simple interlocking parts that soon become musical; the whole sound will be powerful, resonant and much greater than the sum of the parts.
We also encourage the drummers to create their own rhythms, which often leads to a whole new piece of music.
We can take this a step further and facilitate a drum circle, which is a facilitated jam session or a rhythm party. Everyone is involved and contributes to the music. There is no audience. There is no right or wrong.
Drum circles create a sense of community and connection and are a lot of fun!

Gumboot Dancing

Gumboot dancing originated in the mines during apartheid in South Africa. The workers made music with the only things available to them: their voices, hands, and rubber gumboots!
This dynamic and powerful dance style consists of rhythmic slaps, claps, stomping and singing.
Gumboot Dancing is a high energy, percussive, fun activity. The basic steps are easy to pick up and moves are easily adapted to suit different abilities.
Don't forget to bring your wellies!
