Natural Awakenings Boston

RhythmRave for Women Rocks Boston on 11/11/11

Rhythm Rave, a Women’s Dance and Drum Weekend, will come to Boston November 11 through 13 at the DoubleTree Suites Boston Hotel. The weekend event features professional dance and percussion instructors who will teach and facilitate “playshops” for all participants of all levels from Friday afternoon to Sunday. The teaching lineup includes Edwina Lee Tyler, Ubaka Hill, Annagret Baier, Liz Nania and Madison Orange.

 “’Work’ is too serious a word to describe the drumming and dance sessions we’ve planned at Rhythm Rave, so we’re calling them ‘playshops’ instead,” says organizer Shelly Cullen. The playshops take place all weekend, with community dinners and dance parties on Friday and Saturday nights. There also is a Sunday brunch, variety show, drum and dance jam, artisan and craft vendors and a swap table for those who want to sell or trade used instruments. The weekend registration price of $185 covers all playshops, parties, entertainment and Saturday’s community dinner. Other pricing options are available for single events and discounted accommodations are available at the DoubleTree Suites Boston for women who use the code “Rhythm Rave.”

The DoubleTree Suites Boston Hotel is located at 400 Soldiers Field Rd. in Boston. For more information and to register for Rhythm Rave, visit (click on the Rhythm Rave Logo and scroll down).
