In this class, you will learn the basics of contemporary and traditional Afro Brazilian dance and Samba. Connect with the traditions and grace of Brazilian dance in a fun and energetic class, then shake your booty in the spirit of carnival. Brazilian dance has many forms so the class is always new and energetic, yet steps will be broken down without sacrificing the fun and energy. Learn the samba step along with many other vibrant, fast paced, sensual and connected movements. You will get a workout, you will smile. Beginners: body prep and movement. Open: strength and choreo.
What to wear
Stretchy dance gear or comfortable exercise wear. Basically you need something that won’t limit your range of motion. For shoes it is best to wear sneakers or dance shoes without heels. You can also dance barefeet even though you will lack a bit of support. Bring extra clothes for after the class and bring some water because you will sweat. We often eat lunch together after class and have an extended social network for going to Brazilian and Latin events.
