Ice Breakers

Guaranteed to unite EVERYONE in the room within minutes & get your people talking!

Guaranteed to unite everyone in the room within minutes, Afrobeat’s Interactive Drumming has the power to connect strangers, facilitate engagement, and get people talking - instantly!

Let’s face it! Connecting large groups of people on any occasion can be a challenge - Especially if they don’t know each other. 

A networker’s dream, Afrobeat’s Interactive Drumming takes the ‘awkward’ out of new introductions, generating laughter and conversation, getting your people feeling connected, uplifted, energised and inspired – the effect is immediate and infectious!

Drumming together is an equaliser that helps remove social barriers in a non-intimidating, fun atmosphere – allowing all ages, abilities, backgrounds, company status, and levels of experience to achieve success on an equal playing field ‘together’.

So if you want to help participants or guests get to know each other, relax, gain enthusiasm and the necessary confidence to fully participate and feel comfortable with each other, get them drumming FIRST!

Afrobeat gets even the most reluctant drummer to add their beat!

An ice breaker doesn't have to be time consuming. In fact a good ice breaker can last as little as 10 minutes and have a great impact.

Afrobeat offer a range of interactive ‘ice breakers’ including our Interactive Drumming Show, Boom Whack N Groove, Clap Percussion, and Stick Beats.

So if you want to lighten the mood, introduce people to one another, impart a message, or open up your theme or topic of the day with an activity that’s sure to leave a lasting impression – Drum with Us!
