These workshops targets our grassroots children from low to moderate income families.
Many children and youths in the grassroots community don't have the opportunity to participate in a regular weekly dance or music program due to the extra expense for their families.

Many of the costumes, percussion, drums, and educational aids including instructions are free and handed down thou generations to share.
