special programs for all ages
Rubatano Center hosts many guest teachers and performers throughout the year. Many of them come from Zimbabwe and travel around the United States, teaching and performing in the various marimba communities. This is always a fantastic opportunity to experience other teaching styles as well as get a Shona cultural experience. Classes offered include marimba, mbira, hosho, dance and singing. The workshops are offered to Rubatano Center students and within the larger Whidbey Island community.
