Child in traditional dance dress

Saw the kids doing their dance class again today. I only teach twice on Wednesday, giving me massive quantities of time to get on with some drawing. Can't complain frankly, I doubt I'll ever have another job like this later in life.
I stood in as they beat their drums, some of the children stood at the back practicing their technique with the hats while the other kids worked on the rhythm. It's really fascinating to watch, I really love the hats.
Here's a portrait of one of my 4th graders wearing the head gear.
