Camp Fareta (West African Drum and Dance)
Camp Hye Sierra in Dunlap, California
July 7 - 13, 2013

Camp Fareta is a residential workshop hosted by Youssouf Koumbassa, a master dancer, choreographer, and teacher from Guinea, West Africa, and featuring many other master dancers and drummers from Guinea, Mali, and Senegal. It is an immersion in West African drum and dance that started in 2006 and is held at a beautiful setting in the southern Sierras of California each summer.

The program will include three dance class periods and at least two drum class periods per day (aside from the first and last days); other classes, such as balafon (if there is enough interest) and dundun dance, will be offered as well. Youssouf Koumbassa will teach a dance class almost every day.
