African Drum and Dance Full Day Workshop

Come join us for a full day of African drum and dance.

New players welcome, Drums provided, no experience necessary!

Suitable for beginner to intermediate players, we will start with the basics and gently build from there to playing full blown African polyrhythms using a variety of African percussive instruments over the course of the day. You will be amazed at what we can achieve together!

You will also have the opportunity to learn the high energy dances that go along with these rhythms which will further enhance your understanding of the rhythms and is a great fun form of exercise!

Schedule will run something like this:

10:00 - 12:00 : African Drumming
12:00 - 1:00 : Break for Lunch
1:00 - 3:00 : African song and dance

Regular rate is $60, and there will be limited door sales available.

Recently back from a tour of West Africa where he spent time studying with the Griots (traditional holders of musical knowledge), Nathan Bregmen has been playing drums for over 20 years and has been studying African drumming for around 10 years.

Captured by the ability of African drumming to build community and bring people together playing music in a short space of time, the African Drum has quickly become Nathans instrument of choice.

His light hearted but attentive teaching style has quickly made him a favourite with many students around the country.

Amanda Waugh is a relative newcomer on the African dance scene, her passion and energy for the art form has led her to quickly develop her repertoire with many on stage performances under her belt.

Her onstage charisma and non-threatening style has given her the ability to engage with audiences and introduce many a novice to the exciting world of African dance. She is also a big proponent of the health and fitness benefits of African dance.

“There’s something awesome about feeling exhausted after dancing with such joy and excitement, African Dance has this effect on me every time”

Early Bird $54.25
General Admission $64.50
