Another pass around the sun and the Retreat is coming up this weekend!

Magbana DRUM & DANCE - NYC presents:
Guinea & Afro-Cuban Retreat Weekend Weekend Retreat

ABOUT THE RETREAT:

Magbana Drum & Dance NYC has successfully conducted its fun, educational and affordable Weekend Drum & Dance Retreat for the last 12 consecutive years! Our retreat is a deep immersion into the rhythms and dances of Guinea, West Africa and Cuba. Participants will have the opportunity to choose from a variety of classes taught by experienced and professional Guinean and Afro-Cuban musicians in a relaxed and encouraging atmosphere

Our retreat’s schedule is self-guiding and up to the student’s discretion. All of our teachers are fantastic, and patient - so you can't go wrong! We carefully rotate the scheduling of teachers and levels so that each student has an opportunity experience every teacher. This structure enables participants to create their own focus of study throughout the course of the weekend.

This year’s retreat will be held in our new location on 250 beautiful wooded lakefront acres in Rhinebeck, NY – Only 90 miles north of NYC!
Check out the facility: http://www.ramaporetreats.org
“Magbana's Guinea & Afro-Cuban Retreat Weekend” will focus on:

* * Dance
* * Djembe
* * Doundoun
* * Kryin
* * Balafon
* * Shakere
* * Doundoun Dance
* * Congas


We split classes by level - all levels welcomed! Plus: Open mic night, Magbana performance, and Dance party!
HOUSING

Camp Ramapo has a very limited amount of privates, including some available rooms for two people. We are not charging extra for these, but they are first come first serve, so take advantage of the super early bird registration. However, we do have several bunk houses with heat! And also, some without. Some have 6 beds, some 8 and some 12. Please specify any needs to us in an email and we will do the best we can to accommodate everyone! We're looking forward to a great retreat this year!

SCHEDULE available online at: http://magbana.com/weekend_retreat_schedule.html

We are adding more doundoun dance, kryin, shekere and balaphone classes this year and, of course, enough dance and djembe/doundoun classes to end your summer with a bang!
