BRAZILIAN DANCE

Add Dance to your daily routine!

Brazivedas dance classes are fun and a great place to make friends. You will meet people who are just starting and have been taking lessons for many years. You will not only learn moves, but you’ll acquire a deeper understanding of where and how to use them. Dance classes can be for singles or couples.

We focus on Samba and Ballet-Afro. Within Samba we offer Samba no Pé, Samba de Roda, Samba parade, and Samba Reggae. Ballet-Afro refers to a collection of dances developed by African Slaves in Brazil. The dances which make up Ballet-Afrom are Afro, Orixas, Maculele, Frevo, Jongo, Lundu and more.

CAPOEIRA

Capoeira is an exciting combination of martial arts, music, dance and gymnastics. Developed by African slaves in Brazil centuries ago, today Capoeira is practiced by adults and children all over the world. 

Musical instruments include the berimbau (a bowed, percussion instrument that directs the speed of the Capoeira “game”); the pandeiro, similar to a tambourine; the cow bell, or Agogo; and the conga-like drum, the atabaque.

KIDS & FAMILY

Kids as young as two can enjoy learning and training with their parents in a safe, supportive environment. The emphasis is to encourage a connection between family members. Learning together, parents and their kids can practice what they learn and have fun at home.
