Just in time for Carnaval... Samba is the most well known form of dance from Brazil. Our Sambasics workshop will provide an introduction to several substyles of samba including samba no pe (Rio-style samba), samba da Bahia (samba from the state of Bahia) and samba de roda. This workshop focuses on technique and form covering basic samba footwork, travelling movements and turns. A simple choreography will also be taught incorporating all of the movements covered in the workshop. After this class you will be ready to samba in any setting whether it be at a pagode house party or at the club in Rio. Participants: Men & women (Ages 14 & up) of all skill levels are welcome to attend. No formal dance training is required. Female participants are encouraged to bring high heels to practice the final choreography at the end of the workshop.
