Samba de Gafieira
Samba is the most popular music style and one of the most popular dance styles in Brazil.
Samba de Gafieira is danced in couples to many different types of samba music including bossa nova, pagode, samba rock and chorinho. The dance style started in the 1930's in Rio de Janeiro and continues today throughout Brazil. After the 1980's, with the boom of dance schools around Rio de Janeiro the traditional samba de gafieira became influenced by some other dance styles.
Samba de Gafieira, like the music, has evolved into various styles of dance. We teach the most famous methodology in Rio de Janeiro and we believe in keeping as much authenticity and originality as possible in the dance style.
Our style of samba de gafieira is smooth, controlled and precise. Combining this with the cheeky playfulness of the samba music and a large emphasis on musicality, it is a real delight to dance!
