No School Music and Dance Day

Andrea Leading Kids Dance ClassVeteran's Day is just around the corner on Friday, November 11th and if you're planning on staying in or visiting Eugene on this National Holiday then we have an excellent opportunity for you! WACAI is partnering with Music Education and Performing Artists Association (MEPAA) and Peterson Barn to offer cool and cultural workshops for kid ages 10-18 from 12:30-3:30 pm.

Start off with a group rock camp like you've never seen and learn to play two songs on two instruments in one afternoon, then jump into an exciting dance class with LIVE drumming that will get your feet and spirit moving with WACAI!

The Rock Orchestra program from 12:30-2 pm is a group music workshop with experienced music teachers and mentors who use popular rock songs as a tool to facilitate learning instrument, ear-training, and group collaboration skills.

WACAI's dance class from 2:30-3:30 pm will be exciting and accessible to all levels of student from complete beginner to experienced dancer! There is no experience necessary only a desire to move, learn, and have fun! The live drumming will lift everyone's spirits and lighten their feet. Participants will get a satisfying workout while learning about the cultural context of the dance and drumming from Guinea, West Africa.

A FREE and delicious lunch from Pegasus Pizza will be served during the break from 2-2:30 pm. Suggested donations of $10 can be made at the door, however, no one will be turned away because of lack of funds!
