Drum/Dance at Yoga Shala (N. Williams)

Greetings movers, shakers 'n all ye rhythm-makers!

Bring your drum
And your restless feet
As one we become
Hearts shall open and meet

Tap your fingers
And sway to the beat
As the rhythm rises and lingers
Together we feel more complete

Come alone or bring your friends. You don't have to be a drummer to come; come just to watch or listen. And if you're a drummer, all skill levels are welcome. And feel free to bring other acoustic instruments -- didjridoo, flute, guitar, harmonica, whatever.

Microphones and PA will be available for people who would like to sing or for use with other soft instruments.  We will also have a few 'Toyboxes' full of other percussive noise-toys and some extra drums for sharing.  If you have extra instruments to share, please bring them.

As for dancing, you DO NOT need to be a trained dancer (although we do have those from time to time) to get up and move to the beat. As long as YOU are having fun dancing, anything goes.

It's great to see the drummers, didj players, and dancers all playing off of each other.

Don't be a spectator, PARTICIPATE. YOU are the show!

KIDS ARE MOST WELCOME!!

Please support our use of Yogashala space with a suggested donation of $2.00.

Note: Flash cameras/pro-photography are allowed in the last half hour of the drum/dance only. All other cameras are permitted.

    Surprisingly in-rhythm and on-beat for a circle of its size, though it could use a little better facilitation when it comes to ending a song when there's only a few people still playing.

    Hey all! Our good friend Doug Persson, who is one of the co-hosts for this group will be out of town and unable to attend. Doug, for those of you who didn't know, is the wonderful guy with the BIG BLUE TUB of noise makers that he shares at every circle! This means we will be absent the few dozen extra instruments we usually have to share at every circle.
    SO... Could anyone who has an instrument they don't mind sharing please bring it? It doesn't have to be only drums, you can bring Tambourines, Rattles, Shakers, Jing Tinglers, Flu Floopers, Tar Tinkers, Who Hoovers, Gar Ginkers, Trum Tupers, Slu Slumkers, Blum Bloopers, Who Wompers, Zu Zitter Carzays, etc...
    Thank you and see ya there!
