Rehearsal and performance with our African Drumming and Dance Ensemble. The aim of the group is to cultivate ensemble performance skills in areas such as rhythm, synchronization of movement and sound, memorization, aural learning, and expression. Through active participation in the oral tradition of learning, participants will also develop an understanding of the rich cultural context and traditions that give rise to characteristic forms of West African music and dances. All students will sing, dance, and play various percussion instruments.
