Funky beats

One of the more fun things we did with the kids over the Christmas break was attend a party where we all did African Drumming and Dance.  I've mentioned Mr Rosanna's cousin Tamsen before who has been practising for a while and is friends with many West African teachers.
Shabba runs African Star Dance and my boys had a ball at the party using the djembe drums and shouting 'Africa!'  They're still talking about it weeks later.  African Star Dance is available for school workshops, libraries, holiday programs, kinders as well as birthday parties.  You can also hire djembe drums from them.  Call 0433 454 282/ 0406 807 059 or email for more information.
Speaking of exercise, I also picked up the Diamond Valley Bushwalking Club's brochure over the break.  The club was formed in 1985 and has around 200 members.  It encourages both beginners and experienced walkers of both sexes in family or single memberships.  Walks are held almost every weekend of the year as well as on Wednesdays.  Family registration is $10 and annual fees are $50 while a single registration is $8 and annual fee is $30.  For more information email
