Our Dances

Samba de Gaieira

Samba de gafieira is a popular saloon dance from Brazil. Samba has its roots in Africa, and gafieira is the name for the place where the sambistas dance to live music. The elegant dance Gafieira is also called samba a dois (samba between two) or samba de salão (saloon samba).

Forró

There are many stories about the origin of the name. Some say forró comes from the word forrobodó, which means “commotion” or “great party”. Some say it comes from the English words “for all” when immigrants saw the locals dancing it. Anyhow, forró became a popular dance in Brazil.
