Samba Dance Classes in Nottingham
Samba dance is a very lively, fast dance from Brazil that incorporates large sweeping movements that take the dancers across the floor. While ballroom Samba has its roots in traditional Brazilian Samba, the ballroom style has been modified as a partner dance. It is a fun and energetic rhythm from Brazil, which is both a music genre and dance form that originated in Brazil and The music was fused with Indian and Portuguese music creating a Latin rhythm . Swaying and body rolls of Lundu natives were included and later became a major characteristic of samba.
Samba dancers perform rapid steps taken on quarter beats and with swaying motion. The major characteristic of this dance is the "Samba Bounce Action" which is felt through the knees and ankles. The basic footwork of the dance includes fast, three-step change of weight together with a slight lift of the knee and with alternating feet. The rhythm is "quick, quick, slow, and". Samba concludes with the partners throwing their heads back and extending their arms to the sides. Our samba dance classes in Nottingham try to incorporate all the traditions of the past whilst fusing with modern dance .
