You don't have to go to Brazil to to experience its culture for yourself! Samba music and dance has become an icon of Brazilian national identity. Samba de Gafieira means "Dancehall" or Club Samba, and it originated in the 1940's in Rio de Janeiro's gafieira (working-class dance halls). In this class, you will learn this infatuating partner dance that incorporates elements of Carnival Samba, Salsa, and Argentine Tango into one spicy style. You'll learn the fundamental steps, turns, promenades, dips, and more as you gain knowledge of leading/following, musicality, and partner connection. Sometimes called Brazilian Tango, this dance bears some resemblance to tango in terms of how the dancers' legs entwine, but this style is much more playful and cheeky in demeanor. Get ready for a great cardio workout you can put some attitude into!
