Our Mission


One World Dance & Drum exists to bring the power and magic of dance, drum and intercultural experiences alive and real for all people. Through our classes, programs, and services, we ignite awareness, generate community and bring forward the possibility of global transformation. 

The following fundamental values are at the heart of who we are: 

  • Integrity – to honor one’s word as one’s self. Living true to one’s standards, values and ideals.

  • Responsibility – the willingness to be cause in the matter of life.

  • Community – seeing self as one with others.

  • Contribution – being generous, compassionate and authentic with others, sharing oneself openly.

  • Transformation – the genesis of a new realm of possibilities. Making the impossible, possible.

Being true to these values, we provide opportunities for people to come together to learn, grow and celebrate being alive. Inspired by the human spirit, it is our honor and joy to do God’s work … we stand for the transformation of life itself, creating a world that works for everyone.
