West African Drumming and Dance in Santa Rosa, CA

Please forward to your dance & drum friends/groups:

Sena is an excellent drum and dance teacher from Cape Coast, Ghana. She has been teaching both drum and dance for almost 7 years, and has drummed and danced all her life. Her teaching style is very encouraging and includes a lot of contagious laughter. I hope you will join us next Saturday. Please let Sena know if you need to borrow a djembe for the drumming class. And check out her ongoing drum and dance classes listed below.
