Workshop Details

Drumming inspires people to connect. Nationalities and individual agendas disappear; what remains is the grounding presence of our transformed selves — our spirits lightened and empowered. Join Cida Vieira and Mestre Beicola on this journey of joy straight into the heart of Brazilian dance and music. This hands-on (and “feet-on”) workshop explores the instruments, rhythms, music, and the samba dance jeitinho brasieliro (“of the Brazilian way”) in an inclusive and safe environment. Cida writes: “My teaching focuses more on movement than on technical aspects, so that participants can achieve a lively workout and, most importantly, have fun.” This workshop is for everyone aged 14 and up who enjoys and wants to learn more about Brazilian dance and music and its impact in their soul. Please bring drums and/or any instruments (if you have them), along with a significant item to place on a communal altar as a way of sharing your essence. Expect nothing and be ready for everything! No previous dance or drumming experience is necessary. Participants under 18 must be accompanied by an adult.
