Master Drummer Lights Up V.A. Dancing Heart Circle


Kevin Washington, a true dancer’s drummer, joined us at the VA Adult Day program on Thursday.

He set up his drums while we cleared a space to dance. We were inspired to DANCE our hearts out to Kevin’s lively and inventive playing.

Later, when we took a breather, he wove a multi-cultural history of percussion into story and rhythm, leading our 30+ band of drummers, tambourines, clavés and shakers into a wonderful and playful jam with everyone taking part, including staff and volunteers.

Kevin kept us playing together until some of us just had to get up and dance some more.

We really did create something together that could not have happened without each person be willing to play and contribute their own gift to the whole group!




The mission of Kairos Dance Theatre is to transform and revitalize individuals and communities. We work with older adults in intergenerational settings to liberate the healing power of interactive dance and story. We achieve our mission by engaging the skills of professional teaching artists.
