Samba de Gafieira Dance Program
Samba de Gafieira
It’s a partner dance from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil, that evolved as a ballroom dance to the Brazilian samba musical rhythms. The term ‘Gafieira’ means “low dancing resort, gaff, honky-tonk” or “dance festivity frequented by the lower classes.” This is probably due to the fact that the Gafieira Samba was originally danced at cabarets near the red light district area in Rio. Later in the decade, it began to slowly climb its way up in society, eventually working its way all the way up to celebrities and some of the wealthiest people in town!
Our Samba de Gafieira program takes place on Tuesdays from 7-8 pm and Thursdays from 8-9. Classes are available for the same price as the Forró dance program, and students can mix and match as they see fit.
