The Brazilian Soul: Dance and Drumming

Jan 05 - 07, 2018 Begins in 2 months
with Cida Vieira & Mestre Beiçola

Drumming inspires people to connect. Nationalities and individual agendas disappear; what remains is the grounding presence of our transformed selves, and our spirits lightened and empowered. Join Cida Vieira and Mestre Beiçola 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.
