Youth seated around a drum with volunteer instructor

The Northern Plains Singing & Dance Academy is a free weekly program for youth ages 10-17, led by volunteer instructor Justin St. John. You'll learn about the drum and different types of songs and dances, as well as singing and dancing protocols and perspectives. You will gain an understanding of why the drum and dancing are an important part of our way of life. Classes are free!

Check the calendar for the full schedule.

Adult supervision is provided at these events, but we do ask parents/guardians to co-sign the youth permission and traditional code of conduct form (available at the event.)

Activities will change month-to-month and as we have adult volunteers available. If you would like to volunteer your time and talents to help Native youth and families, please contact us here at SPRC!
