Drum/Dance at Peninsula Park (with potluck)

  • Aug 11, 2012 · 6:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

6:00 -- 7:00 pm: picnic 'n potluck

7:00 -- 9:00 pm: regular drum/dance circle

PLEASE NOTE:- This is an OUTDOOR event at the Peninsula Park. We will be meeting by the covered picnic area, which overlooks the baseball field and gazebo.

Greetings rhythm-makers!

Bring your drum
And your restless feet
As one we become
Hearts shall open and meet

Tap your fingers
And sway to the beat
As the rhythm rises and lingers
Together we feel more complete

Come alone or bring your friends. You don't have to be a drummer to come; come just to watch or listen. And if you're a drummer, all skill levels are welcome. And feel free to bring other acoustic instruments -- didjridoo, flute, guitar, harmonica, whatever.

Microphones and PA will be available for people who would like to sing or for use with other soft instruments. We will also have a few 'Toyboxes' full of other percussive noise-toys and some extra drums for sharing. If you have extra instruments to share, please bring them.

As for dancing, you DO NOT need to be a trained dancer (although we do have those from time to time) to get up and move to the beat. As long as YOU are having fun dancing, anything goes.

It's great to see the drummers, didj players, and dancers all playing off of each other.


(Suggested donation $2.00)

POTLUCK: If you're joining us for potluck (at 6pm), please bring a dish that'll feed about 5 to 6 people. More is not necessary. Don't worry about the RSVP count.

Here's to joyful noise!
Here's to you!

Love and Light,
~ Becca (and Sage, Jeff, Doug, Dave, Eric, Susan)

    Always great to be out in our parks. To be honest I like to feel the grass between my toes. Maybe we need to bring our own seating and not rely on being limited to where the park has seating. The outdoors looses a bit of magic when you confine yourself under a structure.

    Just making sure: it's at Peninsular park, the one with the sunken rose garden and NOT Pier Park, the one with the frisbee golf course?
