Summer is a time when we’re supposed to relax, but somehow, it always ends up being a really busy time – there are vacations to plan, pools to swim in, barbecues to attend, and lots of ice cream to eat!
As you’re planning all your summer fun, don’t forget to save time for TAIKO! Although we don’t run a standard 8-week session of our Rec Class or Advanced Skills Class in the summer, we know that it’s just not possible for you to go all the way til September without a few chances to hang with your taiko peeps!
With that in mind, here are some dates to reserve on your calendar…
Saturday, June 29, 5:30-7pm
Learn folk dances from one of Japan’s favorite summer festivals! Open to ANYONE: no dance or taiko experience required!
Sunday, July 14, 5-8pm
Whether you are new to taiko or just want to brush up on the fundamentals, if you’re interested for this, register soon – our Intro Workshops have a history of selling out!
Sunday, July 21, 5-8pm
We’ll reveal all the details of this workshop soon – but we can tell you that it’s open to anyone who’s taken at least two full series of our Rec Class or who has equivalent taiko experience!
Sunday, July 28, 2-4pm & 5-8pm
W H A T ? ? ? More mystery workshops?! Yup, you know it! After all, we don’t call Mark “the world’s most dangerous half-Japanese/half-Scottish solo improvisational taiko artist” for nothin’ … we like to live on the edge here at Mark H Taiko! There will be TWO workshops on this date and BOTH of them are open to anyone who has taken one series of our Rec Class! We guarantee that these workshops will give you plenty to practice and keep your taiko mojo going until our fall classes kick off in September.
Watch this space for the rest of the details and we’ll see you this summer!
