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.

    Bright and energetic new faces. Familiar and comforting old faces. Loved the energy tonite! Even though the PA was dysfunctional (my bad), even though Becca and I was shaken from a scary vehicle accident minutes before the event -- all of you who attended reminded me why I love this circle so much. Thank you and bless you all!

      Yeaaaaaah, that's what I'm talking about! We drum in order to support each other, and if that happens, looks like we accomplished the end-goal!

      Laura said there was a period of time where she could have sworn that she heard chanting ... I zoned out myself several times. Great evening!

    Hello peeps! Hope you're enjoying all the sunshine. Jam starts at 7pm and ends at 9pm. We MUST stop at 9pm sharp, which gives just enough time for Yogashala to close their space by 9:30pm. Kids are most welcome, but please make sure they do not run around unattended at the premises. Yogashala can offer childcare during the event. The rates are $10 per hour for kids 2 and up, $12 per hour for under 2, and $8 for siblings. Looking forward to jamming with yall tonite!

    Meep! I'm a big maybe. I want to do drum circle but the monthly queer party I like going to is the same night; and there are going to be some of my fave old time performance groups are going to be there. I also feel the need to get on stage again there. .. and I have some big things going on this week that might keep me from doing either.

    1 · January 21, 2014

    • Sage R.

      Haha, we'll take a "maybe" over "never" :) You'll enrich the vibes wherever you wind up, bro. So enjoy yo self!

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.
