Conga Kids

Our Mission at Conga Kids is to Promote Social and Emotional Well-Being Through Social Dance.

  • Conga Kids believes that magic is created at the intersection of community, dance, and music - and that harnessing that magic can transform lives. Our in-school residency programs give students a celebratory introduction to social dance forms of the African Diaspora – celebrating the cultural, historical, and musical origins of each dance practice, creating shared understanding of global perspectives, and promoting empathy and pride of culture within our diverse school communities.

    Through dynamic lessons taught by artists from Los Angeles’s vibrant dance community, our students (aka “the Conga Kids!”) explore styles including Merengue, Samba, Rumba, Salsa, Cumbia, Danzón, Authentic Jazz, and Hip Hop!

  • Conga Kids works with respected leaders from the education community to ensure that our programs align with California Content Standards in Visual and Performing Arts (VAPA) and Physical Education (PE). In alignment with our mission, our curriculum team continues to study and apply CASEL’s evolving framework to build explicit and indirect Social-and-Emotional learning (SEL) and dance lessons that have a positive impact on our student and school populations. Through movement and interaction with music, students reduce tension in their bodies, helping to negate symptoms of depression and promote focus in the classroom.

  • Conga Kids continues to pursue progressive curricular shifts, infusing inclusive and equity-centered practices within our curriculum and to better support the social-and-emotional needs of our Black, Indigenous, and LatinX students and families, including students with disabilities.

    Through celebration of cultural heritage through authentic dance and music, Conga Kids students participate in thoughtful discussion surrounding the African Diaspora - honoring how people of African descent have impacted the evolution of dance and music over time and across the world and cultivating a culture of respect and safety in the classroom for students and educators of various social identities, including race, gender, sexuality.

Relax and shake your hips, noobs! Your hands are two tickets to a Latin American dance!

- Love and War Update: Day 1


Konga is a taunt for all classes.

When the player presses the action button, the character will slowly move forward and dance the conga; Additionally, all this is accompanied by the sounds of drums in the background. If playing as a scout, he will periodically clap his hands above his head. The player can control the character during the taunt by pressing the control buttons (A and D). This taunt will continue to repeat until the character is killed, or until the action button or jump button is pressed. nine0009

Any other player, regardless of team, may join the dance of another player who is in the 'conga' taunt action by standing next to them and pressing the action button. Other players will see an icon above the dancer's head indicating that the taunt is active and ready to join. Unlike other taunts, Konga can spread to all players on the server, not limited to two people.

Conga (description, playing technique, rhythms) » Salsa Fiesta

Conga is a narrow high Cuban drum with African roots, possibly derived from the Makuta Makuta drums or the Sikulu Sikulu drums, common in Mbanza Ngungu, Congo (Mbanza Ngungu, Congo) . A person who plays the congas is called a conguero. In Africa, congas were made from hollow logs; in Cuba, the process of making congas resembles the manufacture of barrels. Actually, initially Cuban congas were made just from barrels. These instruments were common in Afro-Caribbean religious music and the rumba. Now congas are very popular in Latin music, especially in such styles as salsa (salsa), son (son), merengue (merengue), reggaeton (reggaeton) and many others. nine0009

Most modern congas have wood or fiberglass bodies and leather or plastic membranes. The conga is played both in a seated and standing position.

Although congas originated in Cuba, their incorporation into popular and folk music in other countries has led to a diversification of terminology for documentation and performers. Ben Jacobi, in his Introduction to the Conga Drum, suggests that drums are called congas in English and tumbadoras in Spanish.

The word "conga" comes from the la conga rhythm often played at Cuban carnivals. The drums on which the la conga rhythm was played were called tambores de conga, which translated into English as conga drums. nine0009


There are many conga rhythms, the most popular being the marcha. This rhythm is usually played on 1, 2 or 3 reels. Marcha is most commonly used in styles such as salsa and sleep. This rhythm is familiar to many under the name Tumbao (Tumbao)

The rhythm of march (tumbao) is clearly and in detail described in this video

Listen and watch the rhythms of salsa, merengue, rumba, cumbia:
- Supertumba can be up to 14 inches (35.5 cm) in diameter.
- The tumba is typically 12 to 12.5 inches (30.5 to 31.8 cm) in diameter.
- Conga is usually 11.5 to 12 inches (29.2 to 30.5 cm) in diameter.
