Brazil is a country that is rich in music and dance. Often what is advertised as Brazilian dance in the United States, is only what has been explored in the North-East and South-East of Brazil. Now you have the opportunity to experience a wider variety of dances encompassing the entirety of Brazil. You will not only learn moves, but also acquire a deeper understanding of where and how to use them. We have a variety of modern dances that can be used in parties, clubs, and social gatherings. In addition, we offer the opportunity to explore and understand more traditional dances used in the Afro-Brazilian religions such as Candomblé.
