Welcome to Virtual West African Drum and Dance Camp Registration!

Tuesday May 5 – Saturday May 9, 2020

Learn Music & Dance While Building Community With Zoom Classes

The global shutdown is changing “normal” for all of us, but we still need the clarity & community we experience when immersed in the beautiful music & rhythms of West Africa.  Come join us for a virtual week (or just a day), on Zoom.  All classes listed will be hosted by Drum Camp registrar Julie Moore or Forrest Matthews.

 These classes not only give us a chance to learn music & enjoy each other’s presence… But the proceeds directly benefit our favorite musicians, who are in dire need of these outlets for their arts.
