Afro-Brazilian with Tania
Super fun class with live drumming, great choreography and high energy!
Afro-Brazilian with Tania
Fun class, Greta workout! Choreography is taught fairly quickly though, so not a good class for anyone who had not taken any sort of dance class before.

Afro-Brazilian with Tania
Love this fast pace class! Tania pushes you to dance your best & breaks down each move! Not for the faint of heart.
Afro-Brazilian with Tania
Choreography is taught for 4 weeks. If you come at the end of the month, you might be a little lost. Don't worry because Tania is patient and amazing to beginners.
Afro-Brazilian with Tania
This class is incredible!! Tania is a master of organizing, energizing and choreographing a great class. Not for beginners, she is very much a "learn by doing" instructor and you need to have a foundation before going into this class.
