I've played djembe for the past 2 years or so, taking private lessons and participating in Shireen Amini's women's drum gatherings. I started West African dance in Bend this past September and fell in love with it. I've been dancing in Santa Fe, NM (Haitian and West African) for the past 2 months and look forward to continuing to dance (and drum) in Bend!
I'd love to actually memorize some of the dances (and possibly perform?!) Also, just to continue to have fun and let go of the outside world. I'd love to see this community grow and thrive!
