Mauricio Campos - Samba de Gafieira & Forró Instructor
Mauricio Campos has been practicing capoeira since 1997; since this art is a mix of dance and martial arts, several other folkloric dances from Brazil have transitioned naturally into his life. Mauricio became interested in Samba de Gafieira around 2013 while traveling in Brazil. He began a quest to find places to learn, taking classes in São Paulo and New York City. At the end of 2015, he started sharing his Samba de Gafieira knowledge with the Houston community.
“It has been an amazing experience to learn from such great dancers and teachers, Chris, Paula and everybody at Casa de Danca Carlinhos de Jesus have made me feel at home and part of their family. I am very excited to start the program in Houston and look forward to dancing everyday”
