Try Group Drumming! HealthRHYTHMS is a fun drumming program which promotes socialization and ensures a healthy, non-strenuous workout. On a deeper level, it builds bridges while fostering nurturing, support, camaraderie, self-respect, and respect for others. It is not really about drumming, but uses the drum as a tool for communication and personal expression.

Facilitators: Russ and Barb Childers
Russ and Barb use fiddle, banjo, dulcimer – and a few surprises – to reveal the memories held in the scraps of their Story Quilt. Audience members choose from 12 different piecework designs on the Story Quilt; they receive a story, proverb, fold belief, song, dance, or even a game in return. Each pattern offers a uniquely interactive history lesson which invites audiences to add their own stories!
