offers a safe space where her Brazilian Soul ignites everyone to express their joy and freedom. Born at the heart of the dance circles of Brazil, Cida has choreographed and performed in the US and abroad with musicians including Xuxa, Ray Charles, Daniela Mercury, and Airto Moreira.
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.
