Space is limited to 20 participants. Can’t make all 6 classes? Feel free to join us on the days that you can: $10.00 per class. The goal of the program is to improve lives through a unique sensory-motor drumming program involving drum sticks, an exercise ball, and music. The primary goal of the Drums Alive® program is creating a "whole mind, whole body" experience for all participating. Drums Alive® will improve the quality of life for a wide variety of audiences; including mentally and physically challenged children; gifted and talented children; fit and healthy children and adults; children and adults with aggression issues; senior citizens; and patients with Parkinson’s disease, Alzheimer’s disease, stroke, and other life-altering conditions.
Improvements will come through the use of principles from movement therapy, music and sound therapy, physical education/fitness and rhythmic education. The program provides a platform for socialization and a sense of belonging to a group, which has shown to improve motivation and fitness adherence. It allows for individual and creative expression through both verbal and non-verbal communication, provides a healthy way to release aggression and decrease stress, focusing on acceptance, respect and understanding of different cultural movements, rhythms and music.
As with any exercise program, please check with your health care professional before making the commitment.
