Samba Brush Up [H2]


Samba is for everyone of all ages!  Samba is a unique and specialized dance form using groups of four to six step movements incorporating side-to-side, forward-and-backward, and circular motions. Men and women dance Samba differently and together, yet with minimal contact. The dance for the women can be characterized by high energy symmetrical foot movements accompanied by elegant hip, shoulder, and arm movements, creating a dance that includes the entire body. Men also perform the same characteristic foot movements, but with limited hip and shoulder movement. Men dance around the women, gracefully incorporating emphatic hops, flamboyant jumps, and graceful spins.

The samba technique combines flexibility, endurance and strengthening. She implements techniques adapted from Afro, ballet and capoeira to strengthen, align and tone your body. The focus of her methodology is self expression through movement to feel the music. Come enjoy and absorb the sensuality, the vibration and the energy of samba beat! Each class begins with a 15 minute warm-up session featuring progressive Afro-Brazilian flexibility movements and stretching exercises that are set to popular Brazilian music. The warm-up is followed by 30 minutes of gradually more complex Samba, capoeira , Afro and Samba Reggae dance steps.
