Drum and Dance for Wellness and Vitality...

Dundun Dance Club - Open House
Tickets now available

Do you love to move to the beat of live drumming? The Dundun Dance Club is a unique opportunity to learn ancient drumming dances that originated from the Baga women of Guinea, West Africa.

Dunduns are large cylindrical bass drums played with sticks. When played these drums offer the medicine of connecting to your own personal strength and presence. They can also help us to invite healing rhythms and joy into our lives.

The Dundun Dance Club is an opportunity to launch 2018 with conscious intention, rhythm, play and connection to your body wisdom. This group is for individuals who are on a journey of personal growth/soul evolution. You can come do deep inner work, while experiencing the vitality of communal drum and dance.

Our Jan 28 Open House event is an opportunity to unleash your inner dancer and drummer in a welcoming, supportive and nourishing environment. If you know that the Dundun Dance Club is for you, a $75 deposit holds your place [dates are below].  If you are dropping in for our Open House, if there are still spaces open for the 3-month program you can register at that time.

Drums are available if you need one. No experience required. 

Do you feel the drums calling you?

Historical Context of Dundun Dance

Kemoko Sano introduced Dundun Dance to the United States over 10 years ago. Through his choreography with internationally performing groups, Les Merveilles De Guinee and Les Ballets Africains. Dundun Dabce became more know in the USA and beyond.

I’ve been blessed to have studied Dundun dance in Guinea, West Africa with M'Bemba Bangoura, and Mr. Kemoko Sano’s son, Seiku Sano, current director of Les Merveilles. For over 4 years I studied and peformed Dundun Dance with Master Drummer, Mohammed Diaby in his company Mandingue Foli Kan Don and Master Dancer Sani Abu in his company Ijo Vudu Dance Co.

 

My passion and respect for West African drum & dance led me to live in West Africa, so I could eat, sleep and breathe the rhythms. The result was deep healing, dear friendships and activation of my purpose. It is with great respect and honor that I share these ancient drumming dances.
