  • Drum Circle

    Needs a location

    What is a drum circle?
    A drum circle is a gathering of people playing percussion instruments as a group. Drum circles are generally unrehearsed and participants often play instruments with their hands, mallets, or drumsticks.
    Rather than being defined and rigid, drum circles are a flowing expression of freedom and creativity.
    Everyone in a drum circle is equal and there are no “specific” parts that each person must play.
    Let the primal urge flow within you!
    Join us every Saturday in person at 11:30 am!
