Loretto, PA: Summer Rhythm Renewal

  • Saint Francis University 117 Evergreen Drive Loretto, PA, 15940 United States (map)

The Summer Rhythm Renewal is a four-day experience that is equal parts revitalizing, connective and educational.

Similar to when you jump start a car battery that has run out of juice, the Summer Rhythm Renewal is designed to provide you with a much deserved "boost".

On any given day at the Renewal, you'll have the opportunity to drum, dance, and learn something new with many friendly, like-minded people- even if you are an absolute beginner!

Here is a sample of the many experiences and workshops awaiting you:

  • Drum & Chant
  • West African Djembe
  • African dance
  • Small Percussion
  • Yoga
  • Afro-Cuban conga,
  • Didgeridoo
  • Yoga

and more special surprises to be announced soon!

At the Summer Rhythm Renewal we encourage you to take impeccable care of yourself. Here you can take a relaxing walk among century old pine trees, connect and spend time with friends old and new, laugh more than you have in decades, eat well, or even just take a nap... whenever you want.

At the Renewal you can expect gifted, down-to-earth instructors, great food, simple & clean lodging, and a comfortable, accepting atmosphere where you can just be yourself.
