NEW Cuban Percussion & Dance Series, Begins Sun. Nov. 2nd

 Rumba Columbia 

Part II


12 - 1 pm Percussion
1 - 2 pm Dance 
     
Classes can be taken individually or enjoy both.  Learn to play and/or dance the Rumba Columbia.  This Afro-Cuban rhythm and dance are derived from Cuba's African & Spanish traditions.  Accompanied by this dynamic rhythm, the dancer demonstrates their agility, strength, confidence and even sense of humor while always maintaining a strong connection to the drum.  Likewise, the drummer must also maintain a strong connection to the dancer's spontaneous changes in movement whenever they occur.  Come check out what this fun and stylized  Rumba music & dance is all about. New and drop-in students welcome.    

Cost: $7 / each class
