Dancing Drum sets a high standard for inspiring, innovative arts programming. Our performances, workshops, and special events for schools and other venues are full of hands-on opportunities for participants to experience the excitement and magic of the percussive arts. We believe that rhythm is fundamental to all music making. In addition to improving musical literacy, we work to build stronger self-confidence, better cooperative social skills, greater awareness of the world, and a transformational community experience. All of Dancing Drum's programs are custom-tailored to the age, skill level, and goals of each group.
Our mission is to educate, entertain, and inspire people of all ages through interactive, percussion-based programs. We utilize drumming as a gateway into multiple subject areas beyond music, integrating visual art, dance, social studies, language arts, geography, science, math, character education, physical ed and more in our curriculum programs for schools.
"Dancing Drum's level of professionalism and appropriateness in dealing with our scholars, their audience, was brilliant, to say the least. I would highly recommend Dancing Drum to any school leaders wishing to have a high energy performance with a powerful message for their school."
