Brazilian Samba

Class description
Samba is one of the most popular music and dance styles to emerge from Brazil. Samba music, with its distinctive rhythm encourages spontaneous dancing, such as in the streets during a Carnival celebration. Samba no pé (which literally means on the foot) is the most popular and traditional form of Samba danced in Brazil and is taught by Louise in class. This high energy dance is done solo and is a fantastic cardio workout. The style originated in the suburbs and favelas of Rio de Janeiro and it’s the main type of Samba that can be seen on the Brazilian Carnival parades. Our samba classes are designed to be fun and energetic that will enable you to learn the basic samba technique, steps and choreography whilst working up a sweat and having fun.

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.
