Drum Circle for Children

Arts & Performance, Children & Families, Interactive

Our hearts beat in time while our cells open and shut in synchronous rhythm and motion. Drumming in a group reveals the miracle of the life force in our bodies. Join in the miracle as we entrain together in spontaneous rhythm making. We will have a lot of fun being helplessly connected to one another as the beat goes round and around. This is a great nonverbal, interactive activity that helps us connect with others and with the power of music planted inside us all. This session is open to the whole family!

Drum Yeshiva

Text Study Braided With Drumming

Interactive, Text & Thought

The rabbis of the Talmud taught that the whole Torah is song. We will make Torah come alive in our Drum Yeshiva Circle by studying in an energetic and embodied way. As meaning, music and rhythm makers we will study texts about drumming, music and Judaism. We will read a text, discuss it, and then drum. We will reflect on our experience of this ancient and embodied method of communal learning.
