You've just answered my question.  You only NEED minimial drumming, but you 
GET lots of drumming.

Do you *really* want me to answer that?  :)

The day at Pennsic after the DOOM-tika-tika-tika-DOOM-tika-DOOM class was 
taught, that's all you heard, day in/day out.  Keeping a beat is one thing, 
beating it into my brain is something else completely.

A drumming jam session for European dancing?!?  Huh?
