|Samba, famous for its sensual and energizing swaying abdominal and hip movements also helps build awareness, endurance, control, strength and flexibility in this very important region. Experience the joy of working out while absorbing samba, samba-reggae, Samba de Roda, Afoxe, and the dances of the orixas (Afro-Brazilian deities) listening to the syncopating rhythms of Brazilian percussion. The class starts with a gentle and complete warm-up that eases you into the full-body movements of the dance. Each class will incorporate choreographic routines combining individual movements to enable you to strut your stuff on the dance floor (or in front of that mirror at home on your own). The focus of the class will be to loosen up, relax, enjoy and absorb Brazilian dance while engaging in an invigorating and cardiovascular workout. For male and female of all ages and levels.
