What is Global Grooves?

With over a decade of short courses, master class weekends, one-to-one tuition, international study and research trips, community development and performance events behind them, Global Grooves raise a fist in the air to the sharing of the richest, most diverse music, dance, arts and heritage from around the globe.

Whether you want to study the depths of folkloric drumming, dance, or song from far off lands and cultures, or simply want to get your feet tapping to captivating concert sounds, the collective has a global groove for you.

    We have a weekend of events in May for you to get involved in as part of a Global Grooves fundraiser.

Whether you have always wanted to hit a drum but never done so, are a dancer wanting to give drumming a go, or a seasoned player, this weekend is suited for everyone.
