Afro-Brazilian Samba at Myo Movement
About this class
Samba Fusion! This is an all-levels class for anyone who is interested in learning how to dance Brazilian samba and other traditional Afro-Brazilian dances. The class will be a ‘samba fusion experience’, meaning it will incorporate styles from different regions of Brazil. Samba is the Brazilian dance of joy and carnival! And its expression is as diverse as the people and cultures throughout Brazil. In this class you will learn the basics of various styles as we explore samba from different regions of Brazil -- from Rio in southern Brazil, which made samba no pe’ famous worldwide with its elaborate carnival celebrations and costumes, to Bahia in the northeast. This was the entry point of samba into Brazil, bringing us styles like samba de roda, samba reggae, samba afro, and others. Although sometimes considered a bit challenging to learn at first, samba is a fun dance and a cultural art form that is recognized worldwide. This is your opportunity to learn the basics (as well as samba technique, fun dance combinations and musicality) from an instructor who has taught hundreds of Austinites to samba over her 10-years as a dance director, choreographer and performer with Austin Samba. If you want to have a great time while also supporting a healthy heart and getting more fit, then this class is for you. So grab any comfortable athletic shoes/clothing. And if you like, also grab your fit-bit (and prepare to be impressed by how many steps you log during class!).
