African Dance & Drum Workshop with Tara Murphy
Tara Murphy, originally from Washington, D.C., began exploring her heritage through African studies at Yale University. She was awarded a Yale fellowship to study traditional dance and drumming at the University of Legon in Ghana, West Africa. Since returning to the U.S., for the past 20 years, she has studied closely with many African and Afro-Caribbean artists in Washington, D.C., New York City and Boston. Tara recognizes the practice of African dance and drumming as a tremendous force for healing, empowerment and community. It is her greatest honor to share the inspiration of these ancient traditions. Free and open to the public!
