Drum/Dance at Lake Oswego Foothills Park (with Potluck)

6:00 -- 7:00 pm: picnic 'n potluck

7:00 -- 9:00 pm: regular drum/dance circle

PLEASE NOTE:- This is an OUTDOOR event at the Foothills Park in Lake Oswego.

 

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 us with a suggested donation of $2.00.

POTLUCK: If you're joining us for potluck (at 6pm), please bring a dish that'll feed about 4 people. More is not necessary. Don't worry about the RSVP count.

Love and Light,

~ Sage (Becca, Eric, Jeff, Doug)

    I loved it. The dancing and singing, the beautiful sounds of many drums playing in harmony under the open sky, echoing through the park.

    You know what's better than bad-ass drumming? A song! Bring a song, and we'll make up a rhythm to go with it. We are SAFE environment to explore not just our drumming/dancing skills, but our voices as well.

    Although the park is easy to find its easy to turn off Oswego Point too early at Foothills Rd instead of Foothils Drive. It will get you close either way & there is more parking down Oswego Point. Nice waterfront park See ya there.

      I think if the map pin is moved to the actual park, it might be more helpful and be less confusing.

      Thanks for suggesting this park, Larry and Sue. I checked it out last week when there was a concert at the park. Nice park!
