10 WEEK COURSE
Samba is a Brazilian music genre and dance style notable for its fast footwork and powerful hips which, when coupled with the beats of the drums, seems to leave its audencies entranced. Its origins lie in the west coast of Africa, coming to Brazil through the slave trade. It is the music genre and dance most closely linked to Rio de Janeiro.
Through this course we break down the 5 foundations of Samba, focusing on the Samba basic step as well as signature movements such as posing, parading, footwork and body movement.
Each week we focus on strengthening the foundations with the eventual aim of joining movements together through combinations.
