Ammaya Dance & Drum

UPDATED: December 17, 2020

I've been giving a lot of African-inspired dance and drum classes on Zoom lately with various communities of people with disabilities, as well as many other communities, and it’s been working out beautifully. People connect with each other, have fun and get a great workout with movement and drumming. It’s a great way to keep moving and uplift our spirits with dancing and music expression during the pandemic. I would love to share this with as many people as possible. I am offering a free trial class, to see how people like the activity (with no obligation).

Zoom Dance & Drum Class Description:
Inspired by West African dance and drumming, this activity is therapeutic and a great outlet for creative expression. First, Tara leads simple dance movements while participants dance together to recorded rhythmic music for the first 30 minutes of class. Then, people sit near table tops or chairs, or get trash cans, buckets, tupperware, kitchen utensils, etc. or other instruments they may have. The group jams out together with recorded music, then Tara leads a succession of rhythms for the next 30 minutes of class. This is a lot of fun! People get a good workout and connect with each other in an upbeat class atmosphere. Members of different locations may join the same class (Maximum is approx. 30 people).
