What we're about

This is a group for someone interested in learning about the manifestations of Afro Brazilian culture trough of Dance.

Afro-Brazilian dance is the rhythmic embodiment of African oral traditions. In its performance of African oral traditions, the elements of ritual drama, homage to the gods, to nature, to the leader are preserved. The everyday local dance of a community is mainly represented by movements arising in rituals (not necessarily religious, but cultural), accompanied by strong influence of African rhythms and instruments. Afro-Brazilian dance incorporates orixá movements without the ritual or liturgy of Candomblé, adapted for the stage from Candomblé’s ritual spaces, samba de roda, samba reggae and other rhythms and movements. The dance also highlights the day to day experience African people’s lives, representing moments such as harvesting, cutting cane, preparing flour, and hunting; or rites and traditions such as the arrival of a king, the crowning of a leader, and death. Agility and release of head, shoulders, arms, torso and hips are common points of movements that range in intensity of energy, slowness and sensuality. Knees bent and feet strongly beating time show the connection to the land.
