What we're about

Welcome!

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.
