What is that craaazy beat? It is rhythmic drumming!!! Rhythmic Drumming is a form of exercise enjoyed around the world. The Department of Parks and Recreation offers this exercise to our island seniors through the Senior Citizens Program. The class is offered at special events to “drum” up interest and will soon be in your local recreation center.
What is rhythmic drumming?
Rhythmic drumming is a form of exercise that asks you to go wild. The equipment is a play ball, 20 to 36 inches in height, a basket to hold it, and a pool noodle. Cut the noodle in half and you have two “drum” sticks. Put on some music you love and pound the ball to the beat! You may go as hard as you want or as easy. The choice is yours. The activity is for all ages, as was seen at a recent event that had 8-year-olds and 80-year-olds on stage. So, if you are looking for a fun activity, check out rhythmic drumming and rock out. See you at the park!
