Samba, Level 1

 

This level is open to all level of dancers but is specially suited to dancers who are just starting in samba, have less than two years of Samba dancing and/or get choreography slowly.

Samba, Level 1 Information: 

What:  Samba Workshop (Level 1), Introduction and Beginners Samba Dancers

This class is for those who never did Samba Before AND for those in the beginners stages of Samba. Plus it is a great class for those who have a hard time getting Samba Choreography on a faster pace since you will work on those skills on a slower pace.

I advise most people to sign to this level. At least 70% of the dancers who did the Parade in 2018 fit here and all dancers starting taking classes with me.

Focus: Introduction, foundation for the basic moves, slow and medium Samba tempo, basic and connecting moves, flow and fun.

Where: BRASIL ARTS CAFE (Studio is in the back of Restaurant), 1230 State Street

When: TUESDAYS, November 6 to December 10 (6 weeks) from 6 to 7:15pm

Cost:  $150 for the season early bird registration (6 weeks) or  $170 on of after November 1 (if any space left). NO drop ins.

IMPORTANT: No refunds (or credit) for workshops for ANY reason. Thank you for your understanding!

Samba, Level 2

A class designed for more advanced students who are ready to go to the next level.

On Level 2, class pace will be a bit more intense, and we expect you to already know how to perform the Samba-no-pé slow and "really' fast (basic samba step). Please note: We will not go back teaching the basic samba step at this level. This class is for those ready to advance and do samba in fast speed.

Class focus: Agility and fast samba, more complex choreography, styling, technical skills, details. My focus will NOT be in giving you a "good workout" but a DANCE class that require TOTAL FOCUS from you. 

Veteran are advised and encouraged to do technique class coming soon too. Technique class will be for those who want to advance in styling.

Samba, Level 2 Information:

What:  Samba Workshop (Advanced Beginners/Low Int, Level 2)

You know, we love our hips, our bum, our bumbum here at the Samba Dance Academy. Samba teaches self love, appreciation and how good it feels to not have to "hide" our butt or conceal it even in movement... how good it feels to express our femininity!

Samba is for you if you: 

Love to dance, or you want to learn how to dance, or are already a dancer
• Love joyful rhythms and music and would love to learn and practice the beautiful and sensual SAMBA, Rio de Janeiro Style.
• Love to feel expressive and want to feel the power and sensuality of your own body.
Want to have fun!
