This class explores the exuberant dances of Brazil known as SAMBA! We’ll learn a range of styles and a few other Afro-Brazilian dances and some contemporary fusion. Women, men and youth (ages 10-18) are welcome! The class starts with a gentle warm-up for improving flexibility, followed by drills and choreographed dances, then cool down. Perfect for those who’d love to learn this beautiful dance, as a workout, and a great place to have fun and make friends! Obrigado!
