Biography

The Tree of Life Drum and Dance Society is bringing multi-cultural awareness through drum and dance theatre. As we explore cultures around the world through movement, we recognize that art imitates life. “Same same, but different.” No matter how different we seem to be, we really are more the same. All people want to celebrate life through music. Together, we will learn something about “other” people.
Although our members come from many different drum paths, we have found a society that wants to educate through theatre. The stage provides a safe place to share artistic vision. Our passion for the healing power of the drum fuels the exciting high-energy dance performance that leaves audiences with wide eyes and wind blown hair. Our ancestors, those that have come before us, have inspired us to share from the folkloric traditions of Cuba, Brazil, Haiti, and the Motherland Africa (West, North, East, South, All directions).

We fuse traditional movement with new contemporary vision to bring the community a life changing performance.
