DRUM ~ DANCE ~ CHILL (San Mateo)

Meets the first Friday evening of every month from 8 - 9:30pm at CHANGE Yoga Studio in downtown San Mateo. The first hour is spent as a drum circle, drumming, dancing, and/or just sitting and listening for those that prefer. The last 30 minutes is spent in silent, seated meditation. If you have a drum, or drums, please bring them, though if you don't have any, no worries, as there are usually ones to share. This is a very laid back, informal group of drummers, dancers, and meditators. No drumming, dancing, or meditation experience is necessary. All are welcome to attend. There is a $1 minimum donation which goes to CHANGE Yoga Studio (a non-profit organization) to help hold the space, which is collected at the studio.

To access the studio from 4th Ave. there is an alleyway called Ben Franklin Court which is directly across from Blockbuster Video. CHANGE Yoga Studio is at the very back of Ben Franklin Court. For those who are driving, there is also a parking lot behind the studio which can be accessed by turning into the driveway located between 4th and 3rd Ave. on the northbound side of El Camino.

    Wonderful - the drumming quieted my mind as I absorbed the music.

    Dear Drummers yet to be met -- this is very late but I am sorry not to be able to attend tonight after all. Special apologies to Jon if you've lugged a spare drum that won't get used. See you all next time, OK?

      Sounds good Alan. I'm sure all drums will get used. See you next time!

    Hi Jon. The entrance to Ben Franklin Court is on 3rd not 4th, just across the street from Starbucks. Once you enter the alley way stay to the left and the studio is the last business on the left. Hope to see you there! :)

      I think you can access it from 3rd or 4th. I guess whatever works for you is perfect. :)

      Actually, now that I think about, you are right, it it is 4th. Thanks for the correction Jeff! Got my streets mixed up. :)

    Alan, there are usually drums to be shared that you can use. Jon, that would be great if you want to bring your extra drum. Thanks!

    Hi Ben,
    Looking forward to March 1. Just to say I have no drum (yet) and hope there is a spare. Thanks.

    I tried to meet up with you a couple of weeks ago and couldn't find or hear your drumming.... I couldn't figure out how to get into the court behind the Ben Franklin Hotel. I guess I was trying to get their from Third Avenue, not Fourth Ave. I will try again. The meetup sounds like lots of fun. Jon

I decided to start Reno Motorcycle Riders Group because I wanted to be part of a group of people who enjoyed my passion... I was excited and nervous. Our group has grown by leaps and bounds. I never thought it would be this big.
