Brazilian Dance

Samba

This important Brazilian dance has its roots in the West African slave trade and has become one of the most important cultural expressions of the country. Its apex is during Carnival when large dance troupes of some of the most elaborately designed costumes imaginable, dance on just as equally impressive floats, competing in front of thousands of people. You can also find Samba being enjoyed at a cafe on the beach with drink in hand, grooving to local samba players.

Capoeira

This Brazilian martial arts form incorporates elements of dance, acrobatics, and a game that produces a spectacular show of flips, kicks, and other human movements rarely seen. It's practiced always to traditional Berimbau music and its African roots as with much in Brazil is very present. Capoeira has in recent times become as popular as Yoga is to North Americans, offering a vehicle for physical health, balance and mental strength.
