Bomba Drumming and Dancing For Children

This workshop offers a fun, safe, creative and dynamic environment for children and youth to learn centuries-old music and dance traditions from Puerto Rico. Through drumming, singing, dancing, and storytelling students learn about Bomba, and Plena, and explore their connections to other Latin and Caribbean music and dance forms. Activities are designed to develop musicianship, body coordination, expressiveness, bilingual literacy skills, and historical and cultural knowledge. Students are also invited to participate in Bombazos, community jams, performances and class recitals where they share what they have learned with friends, family, and the community at large. Drums, hand percussion instruments and dance skirts are provided by the teachers.
