Thursday Dance Sampler
The Pagode (a type of Samba) movement evolved out of the favelas of Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, and became one of the most popular dance and musical art forms in Brazil. In this workshop participants will learn the history and progression of Pagode as an urban social movement while learning actual Pagode choreography. The workshop will start with a cohesive upbeat warm-up inspired by various Afro-Brazilian movements, participants will then learn the basics of traditional Samba, and will conclude with exploring actual popular Pagode choreography. Throughout the workshop participants will also learn basic Portuguese phrases, and will leave the workshop with a stronger sense of the rhythmically challenging Samba technique, an understanding of Brazilian history and connection to our dance community.
