Patty performs a solo with Gary Kehoe and amazes the audience with her grace and flexibility.
Dancers performing here have also spent years studying many dance forms.
Afia WalkingTree, Chris Kenney, Gary Kehoe, Brindle, Michael Glusman.
Darren and dancers Dawna, Joanie, and Patty with Afia on djun-djun.
Sometime even the drummers get in the act with Chris Kenney, footloose and airborne, while Michael Glusman leads the solo dancers on the djembe.
Brindle drumming for a solo with Marian Olicker, the first instructor of dance inspired by traditional West African influences in Santa Cruz. Marian was responsible for bringing many master dancers and drummers into this community and taught many students herself over the years. It was an honor to have her come from the audience to perform for us and with us.
