African Drum & Dance at Ripton Elementary

Ripton Elementary presents the culminating event of our week-long artist in residence with Shidaa African Culture Troupe. Shidaa has been with us March 23-27 teaching us about West African culture as part of our thematic study of Africa. Students and teachers have been learning about drumming, dancing, fabric painting, and drum-making. We will have a drumming and dancing performance Friday March 27 at 6:30 at Ripton Elementary School. All are welcome. Free! The residency was made possible by grants from the National Endowment for the Arts, the Vermont Arts Council, Neat Repeats, ACEEF, Friends of Ripton School, and private donations.
