    I’ve booked in a full day pass for Sat 12th Dec ($80) but should I have indicated the workshops I’d like to do? Here’s my request:! 11am Djembe Intermediate (Mohamed): 12.15 Djembe beginner (Simon Lewis)
    2.30: West African Dance Beg (Mitzi) 3.45; Dun Dun dance (Mohamed).
    I have my own Djembe do you want me to bring my Dun?
    Cheers Maggie
