Another afterschool opportunity for students is the Suah West African Drum and Dance Program. Third- through fifth-grade students can learn music and culture while exercising their minds and bodies. The drumming class meets Tuesdays till 4 p.m., starting Oct. 2, and the dance class on Thursdays until 4 p.m., starting Oct. 4. The cost is $80 for each class, or take both and you can get a discount. Contact director Wesley Williams Jr. at (336) 689-8328 or firstname.lastname@example.org to register or ask questions.
*The video below is a different (free) program that has been hosted at several Greensboro Recreation centers in the past. But it gives you a idea of what’s involved in the drumming and dancing class.
