Brazilian Forró

  • Feb 3, 2014 · 7:30 PM

Come to Freuds for an evening of Forró: a dance class, followed by social dancing. 

Forró is a genre of Brazilian music that originated in the northeast  states of Brazil. It encompasses various dance styles as well as a number of different musical beats. Forró music is very lively, a pleasure to listen to and to dance. It will brighten up your winter Monday evening and make you feel good for the rest of the week.

Meet at Freuds for drinks at 7.30 pm. The class starts at 8.00 pm (half-hour warm up, followed by 1 hour mixed level class). Afterwards, stay dancing until late. 

As a special treat for members of the Oxford Arts Group, "Oxford Forró" is looking into bringing a  live music band from London. More information about this, closer to the event.

The class costs  £4, special introductory price for Oxford Arts Group members. Please show your membership card. ( Otherwise: £5.)

Entrance to Freuds is free. You need to pay if you attend the class.

      You couldn't dance? The photo shows you dancing! You just need a little more practice. Next time I hope you will join the class.

    Hi, guys, sorry to pull out at the very last minute, I'm stuck at work at the hospital. It is most likely I won't finish in time for the class. Have fun and see you at the next one !

    I have just agreed and then remembered I will be on a plane! However this is exactly the type of thing I like doing, so I hope to attend in the future.

    Would love to come to this - good memories of dancing to the musica nordestina in situ :-) Unfortunately I'm away that week (OK, fortunately, as hopefully I will seeing the sun, at least).
