Rhythm is the Cure Workshop

Rhythm is the Cure is an intensive healing workshop featuring Southern Italian ritual dances used as music and dance therapy for centuries throughout the Mediterranean. Participants will learn the unique style of tambourine playing and the ancient healing trance dance of the tarantella, used to cure the mythical bite of the tarantula.

The number of participants and length of the workshop can be customized to your needs--one day to 10 days is possible.
