United we drum SUMMER CAMP
Last summer our pilot summer percussive camp was such a success that we are doing it again this year!
Muntu Dance Theatre of Chicago's United We Drum summer percussive class is a 7 week program that will run from July 11, 2015 to August 22, 2015. Instruction will be given by Master drummers. Program participants will be taught the history and cultural context of rhythms and be given opportunities to explore their own creativity. Participants will have the opportunity to learn about various types of drums and percussive instruments as well as play them. The program will culminate at one of the The Logan center's Family Saturday Festivals (United We Drum) Day where participants will be featured performers showcasing what they have learned.
