We recently returned from the second successful educational adventure to Santiago de Cuba! Thanks to all who supported the project and we look forward to the next one!
The students of School of Groove are about to embark on another adventure to the birthplace of Cuban Son. We are excited to have the opportunity to study for the second time with some fabulous instructors of this traditional musical genre. This will be an exceptional opportunity for the students to be immersed in a unique musical culture and have unforgettable social and cultural experiences.
But opportunities like this cannot be possible without the help of many generous supporters, like you!! Please check out our crowd funding page (https://crowdgift.ca/schoolofgroove2017) or stay tuned for some other exciting fundraising activities (like zumba classes, concerts and more!)
The School of Groove journey to Santiago de Cuba to study Cuban Son was an amazing success! There were five days of workshops with some of the best teachers, some sight-seeing, lots of music, new friendships and experiences. Thanks to everyone who helped make it possible!
On January 7, 2016, six School of Groove students will embark on a great musical adventure to Santiago de Cuba! This is a rare and unique opportunity and these are some of our most dedicated students. It will be an amazingly inspiring experience and we’re excited to make it happen for them.
But of course, like everything, there is a cost. These students come from families who are passionate about giving their children important life-changing experiences and encouraging them to follow their passions. We can use some help to make this a reality for these kids.
