Taiko is a spectacular and energetic art form. It is based on drums of different shapes and sizes played in a variety of standing and sitting positions. Taiko is team drumming. It combines powerful rhythms with ritual and choreography and has limitless creative possibilities. Taiko is strong and positive. It's a means of expressing joyful energy, accessible to everyone, enjoyable for all.
Open to 4th and 5th grades.
