Seattle World Percussion Society promotes participation and appreciation of World Music, Drumming, & Dance, resulting in
· Arts education
· Cultural exchange and awareness
· Increased community access to music participation and learning resources
SWPS supports Seattle’s vibrant web of world rhythm and dance teachers, performers, and activities. We generate discovery and participation in these accessible arts by linking students to teachers, and by sponsoring participatory rhythm and dance events.
Through experiencing the infectious rhythms of Africa, Latin America, the Middle East, India, Asia, and Native America, people of all ages and cultures discover the pulse of creativity we share across all cultures.
SWPS produces the annual World Rhythm Festival. The WRF features over 100 performances and participatory workshops highlight rhythm and dance traditions from around the planet, including one day of special programming for kids and families.
