Samba Reggae with Bahia In Motion

12:00pm – 1:00pm
Taught via Zoom
Open to ages 13 and over
Join us for this fun and energetic class as we explore the history, movements and rhythms of Samba Reggae. The Samba Reggae rhythm emerged out of the Civil Rights and Black Pride movements. Samba Reggae is a symbol of Afro-Brazilian pride and plays a very important role in the identity of Afro-Brazilians today. Its rhythms are powerful, joyful and uplifting. The historical contexts of both of these Brazilian dance forms will be discussed. Get ready to dance, sway, sweat and smile!
