Children's Classes

In a fun and supportive environment, children aged 3 to 18 years old, have the opportunity to learn Caribbean folk dances and drum rhythms.

Through carefully crafted drum routines and dance choreography, children are able to explore the rich traditions of Caribbean folk culture as it is passed from one generation to the next.

At the end of each 8 month session, participants showcase what they have learned and demonstrate their skills. 

Whether your child is an experienced performer or new to the world of drumming and dancing, West-Can’s children’s classes offer something for everyone.
