Rhythm in the Round Drum Circles: In-the-moment percussion music created by adults and children of all ages and abilities. Drum circle magic that happens when we get together with instruments and trust that the music we create will be good and fun!
    Since a few months after dawn on Jan. 1, 2000, Heather Poyner has guided people ages 2-102 in the creation of this music and this fun--at Girl Scout camps, public and charter schools and Adult Daycare facilities and private parties throughout southeastern Wisconsin and northern Illinois.
    As a rhythm facilitator Heather shares her enthusiasm for community drumming: a passion for uniting people with their "inner drummer" as they connect with others in drum circle settings. As you navigate the pages of this website you will discover opportunities for adding some new rhythms to your life. Enjoy!

Second Saturday Drum Circles Return!
Prelude: Long ago, (2001) but not far away, Rhythm in the Round Drum Circles of Kenosha began hosting a community drum circle on the second Saturday of each month.
We started in our living room, which was soon filled to capacity with drummers and other like-minded spirited folks playing hand drums, Native American flutes, didjeridus.
In 2005 we moved operations down to our renovated basement and the fun continued.
In 2008 (yes, at the beginning of the Great Recession), Heather opened The Drum Hut, a retail store downtown Kenosha. There she sold a few drums, reheaded a few drums, offered beginnner djembe lessons, and held wild and crazy drum circles--complete with Black Rose belly dancers. We also offered workshops and events like Taiko Drumming, Didjeridu teachings and the poetry of Rumi and other sufi teachers.
2010-2013: The Drum Hut began sharing space with Yoga & Friends, a long-time downtown Kenosha yoga studio under the direction of Christina Ptak. More music and circles ensued.
2013: The Drum Hut folded its tent poles, in part due to the availability of instruments online. Drum circles continued intermittently at the lake in the summer and on New Year's Day at Southport Beach house.
