Recreation Center Introduces Drum Line, Drill Team
Marching to the beat of a different drummer is easier when the drummer is leading a properly timed cadence. Boys and girls ages 6 to 16 can learn how to perform drum line cadences or perform dance routines through the Drum Line and Drill Team classes at Cambridge Recreation Center, 3930 Cambridge St., near Flamingo Road and Maryland Parkway. The new classes begin the week of Feb. 25 and continue through April 13. Registration is currently open for both classes. Cost is $26 per class.
The CRC Drum Line, for ages 8 to 16, will meet from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursdays and from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m. Saturdays. The Drill Team, for ages 6 to 16, will meet from 6 to 7 p.m. Thursdays. Drummers will need to provide their own drumsticks and participants in both classes will provide their own ear plugs. Drumming and dance skills are not necessary.
The goal of the classes is to provide instruction in a positive environment and increase the participants’ confidence levels by enabling them to perform in front of visitors to the center as well as at community events around the Las Vegas Valley.
