Learn Samba!

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 Carnaval. The whole class happens in the sound of the upbeat and irresistible Brazilian music.

The class will be held from 4-5:30pm and costs $16.

Come with comfortable clothes and be prepared to be barefoot.
