Drum Circle Brings Girls Together


On Monday, July 16, 16 middle school girls from Springfield’s Chestnut Accelerated Middle School and Chicago’s Young Women’s Leadership Charter School will take part in a drum circle on campus.

The drum circle, which will be led by Ellen Clegg, a local facilitator and percussionist, encourages group awareness, synergy and empowerment through collective sound, rhythm and motion.

The 16 girls will be on the Smith campus as part of STEP UP (Summer Talent Exploration Program – Unleashing Potential), a week-long program in the Office of Educational Outreach. The program brings the girls to campus for workshops and activities that help them explore their talents and interests while learning about college.

The STEP UP drum circle will take place from 7 to 8 p.m. on the Quadrangle lawn near Morrow House.
