The Brazilian Soul: Dance and Drumming

Sep 13 - 15, 2019 Begins in 4 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 — 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.
