Drumming for Fitness for Special Needs 

Drumming for Fitness is a unique mind/body fitness experience. Using the pulsating rhythms of drumming over a stability ball, it improves and increases the neurological connections between the two brain hemispheres.

Learning different drumming patterns while simultaneously marching, kicking, or squatting will not only improve flexibility, balance and coordination but it will also enhance the sensory and motor areas of the brain.

Drumming for Fitness has been adapted and modified to suit the needs of mobile participants with developmental disabilities and/or other special needs.

Rhythm and movement in the form of drumming in groups brings on overwhelming joy and social well being to every participant.
Please note: Participants requiring any assistance must drum along with either a parent, a sibling, a worker or other.
