What we're about
You've found the original, famous community calendar for current, accurate info about South Florida drumming/dancing/flow-arts events. ('Flow-arts' means: fire-performing, hooping, poi-spinning, etc.)
We list events in or near south Florida: • drum circles • drum & dance & flow arts performances & classes • trance dances - plus local & regional workshops & festivals about these topics that would be of interest to folks from south Florida.
We'll show you where you can jam - drum and dance - with great, live African, Middle-Eastern, Latin, Native American, World, & spiritual rhythms. Drum/dance circles offer opportunities to connect, to let go, and to feel the ecstatic energy of life flowing through you. You can drum, dance, perform (hoops, poi, fire [sometimes] etc.), meditate, or just watch & enjoy. (Note to teachers: these circles provide a wonderful place for your students to practice their drumming or dancing or flow arts in a loving, appreciative environment.)
*** WHO CAN JOIN ***
Everyone is welcome here - drummers, dancers of every persuasion, flow-artists (fire-performers, poi spinners, hoopers, etc.), musicians, Burners, Rainbow Tribe, yogis, tantrikas, spiritual seekers, those searching for their 'conscious tribe', etc. - whether you're an expert, a beginner, or an appreciative observer. All we ask is mutual respect & harmony.
*** CALENDAR OF EVENTS ***
To see all the wonderful events, please go to our calendar:
*** TO LIST YOUR EVENT ***
on our community calendar (and send an announcement of your event to our very large list of members), submit your detailed listing to the group coordinator below. Better yet, if you run a regular (repeating) event, request to be made an 'Event Organizer' so you can post your own event directly to the calendar, make changes to it, and publicize it to our group members.
