Drumming up participation

Norwich — Aubrie Mahon, 8, left, and Arielys Baez, 8, pound the beat on the floor as Felicia Hurley of Writers Block Ink leads a group of third-, fourth- and fifth-graders at Stanton Network School on a tour performing African drumming and dance Friday in classrooms around the school.

The students learned West African radiational rhythms with the help of Writers Block artists facilitated through the United Community and Family Services school-based health center to build self-confidence and support mental and physical wellness. The performances were the culmination of the academic-year-long program.
