Classes

For more than six years, the Legacy Arts Project has held weekly classes open to the community. For a small cost, anyone between the ages of youth to adult are welcome to experience dance from throughout the African diaspora. The classes have been successful due to the inclusion of all members of the community. Participants are led through a warm-up and dance class to the rhythm of live djembe drumming. As with dancers, drummers are also welcome to attend drum classes. These are led by veteran drummers who have been practicing their crafts for 20+ years.

Come join us as we work towards increasing our health, mind, body and soul.
