Announcing a new Meetup for Japanese Culture Club of New York City!
What: Take A Taiko Drumming Class!
When: Saturday, May 21, 2011 2:45 PM
Workshop Fee: $11.00 per person
Where: Ps 134
293 East Broadway
New York, NY 10002
Why: Learn the art of traditional Japanese Taiko Drumming basics and get a feel of hitting on those big drums for yourself! SPECIAL DISCOUNT: As a member of this meetup group, you pay a special discounted fee of $11 for this 1 hour workshop!
Taiko Ensemble drumming is an amazing Japanese art-form that almost has to be seen to be believed. Like synchronized swimming or Dragonboat racing, Taiko derives its beauty as an artform from the synergy among the ensemble members and the symmetry of their actions before an audience.
But as impressive as it is to behold a Taiko drumming ensemble, we have an opportunity to go one step beyond and take a hands-on lesson in Taiko drumming. Come and join us as we take part in one of the coolest Japanese cultural events a New Yorker can take part in.
Space is limited to 12 members maximum so every one gets a chance to play on the drums and apply what we're learning.
Normally this one-hour workshop would cost $15; but as a member of the Japanese Culture Club you can participate for just $11. Sign up now before all the seats are gone.
