Workshop A

SAMBA

My name is Rebecka, and I have danced samba since 2016. Samba is an expressive dance that brings out a very important part of the history of Brazil and can be an expression of prayer and gratitude. That has resonated with me, and I hope to explore a small part of this with you in this workshop.

In this workshop we will learn the basic samba step combined with different steps and movements that will make up a short choreography. So, if you feel like dancing solo and expressing movements that symbolize the waves of the sea, the rays of the sun, the energy of fire, the grounding safety from the earth, or the light breeze of the wind, with elegance and joy: come and dance samba! And who knows, maybe we will get an opportunity to showcase our little dance to an audience later…?! So, bring your glitter and come and dance!
