Samba for Beginners

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.

    We postponed this class from 11/3 to 11/10 due current transportation challenges. I hope you can still make it!

    Hello. Is this class still on? I know lower Manhattan is without power and there is limited mass transit. If someone could confirm whether the class is postponed or not, we'd appreciate it. Thanks!

    Unfortunately Danielle can't teach samba this coming Sat 10/27, so we will postpone the event to next week 11/3. We hope the change of schedule does not interfere in your plans to attend the samba class.
