Intro to the Samba

Many artists, ranging from English-language singers Avril Lavigne and Michael Buble to Hispanic songbirds like Gloria Estefan, have Samba-beat songs in their repertoire.

You can also often experience the Samba beat (a full musical beat followed by another full beat broken into 3/4 and 1/4 beats) when you hit the streets in the summer where music festivals happen.

Of course, this kind of music is a regular standby at Ballroom dance venues, like Toronto`s West-Way Club which is the most well-known ballroom dance location in Ontario.

Like the jive, the Samba is a high-energy dance with figures that are enthralling as they are sensual.

Give it a shot. Join us.

      You actually did execute on the figures. You've actually risen to the top of the Canadian population which is largely not formally trained.
