Dancing Drum

Jump in the Rhythm! An Interactive Drumming Experience for Kids & Families
Sat, Oct 12, 2013
Rotunda Stage | 
Running time: 45 minutes

Join Dancing Drum as we explore the exciting world of percussion through hand drums, stick drums, shakers, woodblocks, and more! This hands-on, interactive program uses music and rhythmic patterns to reinforce early childhood learning concepts like counting, listening, and working together as a team. Many volunteers will join us onstage throughout this exciting and engaging program to drum, dance, and sing along!


Stop by the Central Library for art activities, special book displays and more, inspired by performances at Overture Center for the Arts’ Kids in the Rotunda series. Activities will be available from 9:00 am — 5:00 pm in the Children’s Room.


Each Saturday from the end of September through April at 9:30 AM, 11 AM and 1 PM, Overture Center presents Kids in the Rotunda, a series of FREE artistic programs designed for children and families. This popular performing arts series on the Rotunda Stage offers a relaxed, kid-friendly environment in which to enjoy a diverse lineup of local and regional musicians, storytellers, jugglers, theater troupes, magicians and dancers. The 1 PM performances are sign language interpreted.


Additional funding provided by the Kuehn Family Foundation and by contributions to Overture Center for the Arts. Learn how you can help make arts experiences real for hundreds of thousands of people in the greater Madison area by clicking here.
