Shabba is coming to entertain the kids!

Loddon Shire plans to mark national Children’s Week later this month by hosting a 45-minute West African drum and dance workshop for 72 four-year-olds from Council’s five kindergartens around the Shire.

The event, planned for Thursday 23 October at Boort Memorial Hall, will feature one of the principals from African Drumming, a St Kilda-based business specialising in drumming equipment, classes and performances.

Shabba is a professional dancer from Ghana, who is a member of both the Asanti Dance Theatre in Melbourne and African Footprints (Ghana).  He has performed and facilitated workshops in African dance throughout Europe.

National Children’s Week runs from 18-26 October
