This is a place for folks to connect with other drummers, dancers, and hoopers in the Madison WI area and beyond.  

No experience necessary. It is all for fun.  Our community drum circle is free and open to all. In our drum circle we have no goal or destination. There is only the experience of the process, arriving in each moment. We are here to improvise and release and take the energy that will create balance in our lives. We will use this playful, expressive and energetic environment to collaborate to create music as a community.

I will be posting events for group drumming circles, drum and bonfire campouts, workshops, classes, Burning Man, and  other related things.  You should be getting  NO spam. If you do, please inform me immediately.

Posting of events is restricted to organizers. If you have an idea for a gathering, please let one of us know.

You can also post your ideas for events and meets on the discussion board.

The group will grow as more people find out about it, so please ask your friends to join the group too!

***At most meets we will have extra drums or hoops available if you don't have one.







**If your drum needs tuning, or major help, we can steer you in the right direction.

Please email the organizer if you have questions.
