Afro-Brazilian danceis a synthesis of the African, Portuguese and
Indigenous cultures in Brazil. Many cultural traditions of Africa have been preserved and expressed in the music and dance.
Movement in this class is inspired by the season of Carnaval. This parade style expression is based on the movements originated by Afro-Brazilian samba groups. The movement is grounded and lifted; earthy and free. Prepare to dance samba like you never have before.
