Ladies-Only Hand Drum Classes
WOCA: drumming for "women of certain attitude"
On-Going, Tuesdays, 7-8 pm
This series of drum classes for women rocks! The class launched August 2012 and we've been grooving ever since! Originally for "Women of Certain Age", the core group has expanded to include women of all ages. It's just too fun to keep all to themselves!
Together we explore our inherent rhythm, share our gifts, and embrace the ancient wisdom teachings found in the village and shared through the metaphor of drumming. Find reason, connection, creativity, harmony, and healing with a group of like-minded women coming together to get their groove on!
No experience necessary. Loaner drums available. Start any time.
RATES & COMMITTMENT: We organize the class like a cohort. Each month our members commit to being there with and for one-another in a hands-on, experiential learning community. You can join at any time during the month; we simply ask you to commit to four sessions in a row in order to develop technique and bond with the group. Beyond that, you’re free to drop in and out as necessary. Most women pre-pay at the beginning of each month; $15/session. The drop-in rate is $20. Tight budget? Don't let money stand between you and a life in rhythm! Payment options and scholarships are available. We want you to join us — no matter what.
LOCATION - Members of the group host classes in their homes. The location is subject to change. We're currently meeting in North and West Raleigh.

Here’s what they’re saying:
"You help me...
Get out of my head and into my body.
Get out of my head and feel my body.
Hold sacred space for me to play and have fun.
Gently guide me out of self judgement and into self acceptance.
Hold sacred space to drum, and laugh, and connect." -- Dorena
"Playing with Greg is fun. It's inspirational, and I feel happier and healthier after every session". -- Sally
"For me it's been the permission to explore and risk without fear of criticism or pressure. That has allowed me to truly "play" in a whole new way. You only ask willingness to participate at whatever level is comfortable, with no shaming, ever. This allows parts of me to show up that went into hiding way back in junior high." -- Missy
