Moving Forward Summer Camp

In June, Moving Forward Dance Studio partnered with Building Stable Lives to provide a 2 week summer camp for children 6-12 in East Chattanooga.Rebekah and Kofi Makuwo taught the participants African dance, drumming, traditional songs, and culture for 10 days. Rebekah and Kofi are dedicated to sharing African history and traditions to youth in Chattanooga to encourage conversations and awareness on global diversity, especially among youth.   

The African Drumming sessions with Kofi and other community members became the participants favorite session.  The variety of classes taught participants basics in rhythm and beat formation and created a fun sense of community for drummers of all ages.
