Samba is perhaps the most joyous musical genre of Latin America with its heavy emphasis on rhythm and harmony. As a dance form, it is a genre typically understood in the United States through the interpretation of European and American ballroom.
Samba is a Brazilian music and dance. This class will focus on samba as it is danced in Brazil both solo and as a partner dance. Samba as a solo dance is a good workout (think of zumba and African dance) and as a partner dance (samba de gafieira) it often has the look of salsa crossed with tango.
Here is a sample of Brazilian samba (both solo and partner)
The class will continue throughout June and July.
$10 per class / $40 for a 5 class series
