Ever Rhythms offers a unique approach to team building using rhythm-based activities.  It is not just about playing games, but recognizing the “metaphors from the rhythm experiences” have valuable impact  for children.  The focus of this program will be "How Native Americans, Africans, and American African slaves used drumming and rhythm to communicate".  Come drum with us!
