Drumming

Drumming for Belly Dancers

Drumming live successfully for belly dancers means knowing the drum, the playing technique, the rhythms, and many little adjustments to the drum circle that together add up to a significantly better performance for the dancers and the audience. This workshop will not only teach you how to drum but how to dance to drum via the unspoken communication between dancers and drummers. You don’t need to own a drum to take this class, but if you have one, please bring it and Marceau will tune yours for you. This class is for drummers AND dancers!
