Forró {fo-haw} is a lively and fun dance from Brazil. It is very popular in Brazil and is growing fans from around the world as the dance dynamically mixes both close and open embrace, legwork, as well as turns. In this mini-introductory class, you’ll learn the basic forró rhythm, footwork, and some turns. Class is $10 per person and runs from 6:30PM to 7PM. No partner needed and be sure to wear clothes and shoes you can move in. When you book, just show up about 5-10 minutes before the start of class and let the host know you are on the list for Art of Forró!

And don’t forget to stay afterwards and dance the night away at Forró Forever with Cajuína! No forró dancing experience required, just the desire to have fun! Show is FREE and starts at 7PM.
