Samba no Pé

Samba no Pé (literally "Samba in the foot") is a solo dance very common in Brazilian Carnival. This is also one of the most common types of samba dancing in Brazil.


Although many people envisage Samba no Pe as being out of reach with the images of Carnival ladies dancing in tiny bikinis and men moving their feet at super human speed. But learning and dancing Samba can be extremely fun and exciting!


The Afro-Brazilian artform Capoeira is practiced as a sport, performance, art and dance.


A Capoeira class for children is included in our programme.


Frevo is a dance and musical style from Recife, Pernambuco, Brazil. It evolved from Capoeira, where the traditional weapons were traded in for a less threatening umbrella. This acrobatic dance is traditionally associated with Brazilian Carnival.
