Latin Mix Mondays: Samba

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 
CD of practice music included

We will go to Cafe Maude after class to chat and to chill out :)

    The teacher was very attentive and had to have a lot of patience with some dancers with two left feet. Enlightened.

    My husband, Jimmie aka Jimmieapolis the Saxophonist and I Pennie are enjoying our neighborhood outing. As a music industry business, we get to enjoy music others provide for dance as we provide music for others to dance. Nice connection.
