Dance | Clapping | Rhythms | Kwaito and DJ


In traditional South African communities, music forms the pivotal core around which the community is structured and dance is used to bind the community.

The Drum Cafe team will teach the group the dance form of your choice. Interactive dance is wonderful as a finale to interactive drumming and boomwhacking or can be an entire team-building event on its own. Our team will teach your group basic dance routines, and within a few minutes you will be dancing together and having fun.

Interactive Team Building and Dancing

What happens on the day?

As guests enter the venue, they are welcomed with a dance performance by a group of dancers on stage, and whilst everyone is being seated a Zulu King enters to loud cheers and praises from the dancers on stage. The King welcomes everyone to his village and his praise poet praises the king and the gathering. (With a clear brief from you, this praise poetry can be tailored to refer to your event).

The King explains that celebration is a communal affair and requires that everyone add not only their voices, but also their bodies to the occasion.

An interactive dance session of around 20 minutes follows, in which the dancers teach the audience a series of fun, simple steps, building up into a sequence with a hot ending. If desired, the dancers can then perform five-minute choreography as a finale.

Duration: 20 - 40 minutes

Dance | Clapping | Rhythms | Kwaito and DJ


Interactive clapping is ideal for very large groups of people and is also an ideal finale to Interactive Drumming. Our team will teach basic clapping rhythms to your group, which come together to make a beautiful sound. Participants either clap their hands or use clapping sticks.

What happens on the day?

The Drum Cafe drummers begin by setting the mood with an explosive drumming performance. The facilitator then divides the audience up, teaching each section a unique rhythm. Each section do their own clapping rhythm, which comes together beautifully to form an uplifting composition.
