Study
Program

Our study program is geared to suit your individual needs. With classes graded for Beginners right through to Advanced / Professional levels. Our skilled teachers will make sure you are grouped with students of a similar level and provided with differentiated instruction.

Our teachers have decades of teaching experience and you’ll be pushed to learn

as much as possible during your tour. We hold a 2-hour morning session and a 2-hour afternoon session each weekday. An additional ‘all-in’ drum & dance afternoon session is provided three times a week after our regular classes.  All the teachers and students come together to jam giving a unique opportunity to extend the skills learned in class. This allows people who are focusing to master quickly!

 

You’ll also have time for additional private tuition if you feel like pushing a little bit further. Whether it be drum, dance, basket weaving, clay pot making, bead making and dress making you will be encouraged and challenged to excel as far as you want to go!
