Week #1: Colombian Music with FTH Teaching Artist Martin Vejarano
Flushing Town Hall Teaching Artist Martin Vejarano invites you to explore the rhythms of Colombia using simple homemade instruments. Using plastic buckets for drums, wooden spoons for drumsticks and a homemade shaker you will be able to explore four different rhythms from the Atlantic and Pacific coasts of Colombia. These rhythms are as unique and diverse as Colombia's culture which mixes Indigenous, African and European heritage. Please try these all-ages, family-friendly activities and show us how you make music with them. >> CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED
Week #2: Chinese Dance with FTH Teaching Artist Ling Tang
This week’s lessons introduce you to Chinese dance led by Flushing Town Hall Teaching Artist Ling Tang. Ling is a dancer, choreographer and a teacher. You may have seen her perform on stage at Flushing Town Hall or teaching youngsters in our schools. But we join her at her apartment in Queens as we practice safe distancing. She doesn’t use many dance props just a ribbon and chopsticks--- but she’ll show you how to improvise with what you have. >> CLICK HERE TO GET STARTED!
