Samba was inspired principally from an African rhythm called Semba and was formed from different references from several tribal African rhythms.

1st part: Base of the workshop and from the origins. We will start with SAMBA DE RODA. Samba de Roda,  born in the bahian Reconcavo north region at Brasil, means a mixture of music, religion, dance, poetryand party. It is very present and visible in all the state of Bahia. 

2nd part: samba in modern times. Without losing the samba de roda swing we will start learning the basic steps from the authentic samba from Río de Janeiro. When we talk about modernity we refer to the malandro samba. It is a very elegant style and has a very typical Brazilian way of movement with a lot of leg crossing, turns, shifts and fun moments with a lot of swing.
