Manchester longest-running West African Drumming class. This mixed-ability drop-in class is good for beginners and experienced players – and at the start of each month, we begin a new rhythm, giving participants the opportunity to learn both djembe and dun-dun. We teach basic accompaniments, bass lines, arranged breaks, and solo material, plus traditional African songs, working as a group towards an overall understanding of the music

Covid Safe: Due to Covid restrictions, we are currently only running a 2-hour mixed ability class. Face masks must be worn throughout the class and we are keeping 2 meters spacing between each person. Because of this, we have limited numbers so we are asking people to contact us to confirm attendance.

Louis is a fantastic teacher. He breaks the routines down into easy to follow steps, so even complete dance novices can have a go, but also provides a level of challenge for more experienced dancers. His positive energy is infectious and will leave you buzzing at the end of each session! Generally, the class is a real mix of ages, experience & cultures and is a very warm and welcoming community to all.
