The drummer/dancer connection. All levels welcome! Drummers and dancers, join Susu and TerriAnne as they take you on a rhythmic journey. Learning the drum solo on an instrument in the first half of this workshop will help you to understand the way a drum solo is constructed, this is important for both dancers and drummers. In the second half we divide up into drummers and dancers (drummers playing for dancers), as we learn movements that go with a drum solo as well as how to improvise to a live drummer when neither you nor them knows what is coming next. Bring deffs or any kind of drum to class.
