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.

      I can't tell about the class itself, but samba begins with the same steps for everybody. Once someone gets to the intermediate level, the steps are a bit differentiated.

    My first meet up renewed my interest in continuing to learn portuguese. I'm tempted to take the Samba for beginners.
