  Through impressive performances, Wontanara Drum & Dance joins together music and dance to create a powerful and energetic show. This diverse and educational performance will engage and entertain world culture fans of all ages.

  Our dance workshops encourage students to move imaginatively, respond to music and to choreographic instruction all the while learning about Guinean culture. Through these workshops, participants experience the excitement of dancing to live percussion, and learn a new way of self-expression through energetic movement.

  Drumming workshops are also a great way to bring together community and ignite creativity in a team building environment. Students learn basic West African rhythms; improve on listening and co-ordination skills and work together to create great sounding percussive music.

  Wontanara is also available for school performances and workshops. We have experience teaching and performing in many schools in the CRD for children from kindergarten level to high school senior level. We love sharing our knowledge and passion with curious and enthusiastic youth of all ages and enjoy sharing West African culture with the students.
