Due to interest, Sandra Kosev will be teaching a FULL 8 week course in Brazilian Samba! ○ What is Samba? ○ Samba was created by African people in Brazil from the music and dance culture they brought from Africa. Samba music is very similar to and has been influenced by many Angolan music genres, as well as many other Latin American music genres and dances. The term “samba” originally referred to any of several Latin duet dances with origins from the Congo and Angola. Today Samba is the most prevalent dance form in Brazil, and reaches the height of its importance during the festival of Carnaval.There is actually a set of dances, rather than a single dance, that define the Samba dancing scene in Brazil; however, no one dance can be claimed with certainty as the “original” Samba style. Besides Brazilian Samba, a major style of Samba is ballroom Samba, which differs significantly. ○ What will this course cover? ○ Sandra will be teaching the several basics of Samba, including hip and arm movement. Part of her choreography will be rehearsed in class to practice each new step! Most importantly, she will cover the ATTITUDE of Samba and how to work it on the dance floor! Your abs will be so toned by the end of these 8 weeks. ;) **Note: If you really enjoy Samba, Sandra is looking for people to join her performance team! You will be learning her routine and performing it, feathers and all!** ○ Details ○ When: Thursdays, 9-10 pm starting Sept 9 Price: $135/person | $20/drop in Where: 245 Sheppard Ave W, third floor Register online here: [hidden] No dance or Samba experience required!
