Samba de Gafieira Classes

Samba de Gafieira (also called Gafieira)is a dance expression of the Brazilian samba rhythm also found in many contemporary, R&B and popular music.

These weekly classes will help you master the foundation moves that make up this fun dance. The classes are complimented by a teacher to help you and a community of students at various stages of their own learning. We also hold small social events offering an opportunity to apply what you learn in the classes.

Dancers enjoy Gafieira because of its vitality and room for creativity.
