Hand drum workshop with Yulsuvvy at danceworx, Bossier City, on Sat, June 3, 2 to 4 pm

Dumbek and djembe time has arrived, percussion lovers. The Port Belly Project is sponsoring a hand drum workshop on Saturday, June 3rd, from 2 to 4 pm at Danceworx Studio in Bossier. The members of Yulssuvy, a semi-professional group of performers from Tyler, Tx, will lead the class.

They will cover the basics, as well as tips and tricks to use when performing live music for dancers or participating in community drum circles, says dance teacher Kathy Fontaine. All ages are welcome. Bring a drum, finger cymbals or your favorite percussive piece if you have one (a box will do, in truth). "Yunyk" says he will bring as many drums as he can purloin.

Danceworx is located in The Airline Center, 2387 Airline Dr. in Bossier City (above Planet Fun). The cost of the workshop is $20 per person, payable at the door.
