African Music & Dance Camp – Full Day
Are you looking for something different for your kid to do this summer? Kutandara’s Summer Camp is a unique program that gives children an in-depth opportunity to explore music and dance from Zimbabwe. Young people play by ear and build their musical confidence on all levels.
African Drumming + Gumboot Dancing
Zimbabwean Songs + Games
Zimbabwean Marimba + Mbira
If your kids are already doing music, this is the perfect match. If your kids haven’t yet had success with conventional music – you’ll love this! No prior musical experience necessary.

Marimba Busking Camp – Full Day
Our marimba busking day camp allows preteens and teens to work in small groups to create cool marimba arrangements, and then earn their very own money performing on Pearl Street Mall.
Money Management + Gifting Mentality
We meet at Kutandara in the mornings and then travel by RTD bus to spend most afternoons on Pearl Street Mall together playing and earning tips…to spend on treats or take home and save. Kids learn performance, audience interaction, money management, and decision-making skills.
