2013 MUSIC & DANCE WORKSHOPS
Music is the heartbeat of the Procession - bridging the hearts and minds of both performers and observers. These workshops are designed to place musical groups throughout the Procession, but we need more music and more types of sounds and rhythms than what is offered here. No matter what your level of expertise, if you would like to form a group, or if you have a group all ready to shake, rattle and roll, then please accept our invitation to be in the Processions composition!
