dance, art, and music classes

Dance, Art, and Music

The Dance and Art class is a two hour class with equal time dedicated to both dance and visual art based on themes. Teachers may use a dance and a visual art concept such as shape, line, color, texture, or pattern as a springboard for exploration and creation then culminate with a visual art and dance composition.  Children will dance in the dance studio, have a short break and snack, then move to the visual art studio.

Please see music add-on class options and descriptions below.

Drumming

These drumming classes, taught by Wachira Waigwa-Stone, are designed for beginning to intermediate level, junior high and high school age drummers. Students will learn fundamental technique and basic rudiments (the syllables that are used to form the words and phrases of the drumming language), as well as explore rhythmic patterns, call and response, reading, and improvisation. Drills and exercises will be done each class with a practice pad and sticks, and then students will learn musical phrases, as well as create their own two or three-part layered rhythms using re-purposed and found objects such as buckets, pot, and pans.

Students will be expected to practice an hour a day throughout the week, in preparation for the following week’s class. A packet of take-home exercises will be provided.

During the second half of the semester, the class will have the opportunity to work with the Trash Panda Drum Group, who will come teach some masterclasses, set a piece on the group for the end of semester performance, and help the students come up with ideas for their own group composition, also to be featured in the performance.
