I visited TAP camp last Wednesday during our Rhythm and Drums week. The energy in every session was electrifying. There’s something about making a rhythmic sound that makes your heart beat faster. I witnessed the fun you can make from making a drum out of a plastic paint bucket turned upside down, stomping your feet, and the ka-thump, ka-thump you get from moving your body and singing.
All of this drumming brought back memories of the show Stomp I saw years ago at Austin’s Paramount Theatre where everything was turned into a percussive instrument: brooms, plastic bags, pasta (yes pasta!) and even the kitchen sink.
Rhythm and Drums campers showed me that to be a creative artist, all that was needed was to trust in the guidance of a devoted Teaching Artist, follow our hearts, and step through the door to our imagination.
TAP Camp continues through August 1oth. Don’t miss all the fun!
