Ramzi's Middle-Eastern Drum Workshop

  • Josie's International School of Dance 42 Memorial Plaza Pleasantville, NY, 10570 United States (map)

GRAB A DRUM AND HAVE SOME FUN!  For all levels.  Learn the basics of the Middle Eastern polyrhythmic structures, focusing on North African and Arab rhythms.  Each practice reviews the basic rhythms introduced from earlier workshops with new variations for more experienced drummers.  More experienced drummers are welcome to come and play along during our Monday night Belly Dance classes.  For non-dancers, drumming provides great stress relief and "brain exercise".  For belly dancers, learning the rhythms of the music you dance to is imperative to developing stellar musicality and feeling in your dance.

Drum Rentals:  $5 (must be reserved one day in advance).
