Dance & Drum Humboldt
DDH provides the organization for several educational and performance groups. As the organizing body for Samba da Alegria, the community samba dance and drum troupe, DDH will continue to provide a thrilling parade for the annual North Country Fair. As the creative directors for sambAmore, a private performance group, we will continue to fuse dance and drumming styles to inspire audiences and promote this art form. As instructors, we will continue to work in elementary, high school, after school programs, and community venues to teach cultural applications of the relationship between dance and drums to Humboldt County youth.
