Samba for Beginners

  • Dec 21, 2013 · 5:00 PM
  • This location is shown only to members

The samba for beginners’ class starts with a 30-minute warm up that exercises basic isolation of the body, following by stretching and strengthening exercises. After the warm up, Danielle introduces the students samba no pé (basic samba step) and passo marcado (simple choreographies) typical of the Rio Carnival. The whole class happens in the sound of the upbeat and irresistible Brazilian music.

The class will be held on Saturday from 5-6:30pm and costs $18.

Come with comfortable clothes and be prepared to be barefoot.

    amo a dança, porém eu gostaria de encontrar para uma conversa, literatura, arte e futebol. Se a dança é o foco, eu tenho a declinar.

      Hi, Benjamin! I am sorry I did not see your question before. The samba class is taught by one of our members, Danielle, not by the meetup group. I believe she does not offer a free class, since she rents the space and needs to pay for it. I hope you attended the event and learned a few new samba steps!
