Kulu Mele offers weekly West African dance & drumming classes for children ages 5 to 18.  No dance or music experience necessary. Classes meet weekly during the school year, and end with performance for family and friends. Called "Omo Kulu Mele," Kulu Mele's children's classes offer many benefits. Participants get great exercise, improve coordination, develop their self-esteem and experience the pride of accomplishment. Classes are a chance for children of African heritage to explore their cultures of origin, while other students embark on a cross-cultural journey.

Classes are taught at:

954 Dance Movement Collective
954 North 8th Street (just South of Girard Ave.)
Philadelphia, PA 19123
