DRUMMING UP CHARACTER

DuPage Foundation grant brings Dancing Drum interactive workshop-to-performance percussion program to BSD2 elementary schools.

During the workshop portion of the Dancing Drum program, students learned a unique ensemble piece, which included exciting rhythms, drum breaks, and even solos. By the end of the workshop, each student group was ready to showcase its ensemble piece at the final “Drumming Up Character” performance.

The Dancing Drum program was made possible by a $10,000 DuPage Foundation Young People’s Music Initiative Grant funded through the JCS Arts, Health and Education Fund.
