My Students

My students and I love to learn and we use every moment during our day to explore, question, and create. We are scholars, working to imagine new possibilities for our community, city, state, country, and world.

My students have minds that are curious and full of energy for learning.

They dream of creative solutions for a better world. Together, my students and I are working hard to ensure that they are all confident and capable of meeting their full potential.

My Project

Taiko is the Japanese word for drum, and refers to the modern style of playing. This performance promises to be a high-energy performance combining dance and martial arts with traditional Japanese percussion. The performance notes say: "HERbeat is a powerful celebration of gender equity in Taiko that puts women center stage!"

We are a group of creators and performers that needs to see real performing art in our community.

Children needs many opportunities to experience art. This performance provides a fresh perspective to what drumming is. Thank you in advance for supporting our students' experiences in our community. Thank you for supporting art.
