Dancing to the beat of my own Drum
Sunday was our first free day so we all decided to take African dance and drum lessons. The lesson itself was very basic, but I enjoyed it very much. We started the lesson by learning a couple steps to a traditional African dance, but my favorite part came when we got to learn how to play some of the drums. Our instructor taught us about four or five different beats and we would rotate between playing as a group and individually. I realized that playing the drums is actually not as easy as it looks, but a lot of fun. My favorite part was when we learned how to play three drums and how to play the African version of a xylophone.
