    Dance and Movement Classes

    Experience the joy of Brazilian carnival while learning samba, samba-reggae, maracatu, and other dances to the driving rhythms of live Brazilian drumming! The class starts with a gentle warm-up based on the Feldenkrais Method® that eases you into the full-body movements of the dance. This class is great if you’re new to Afro-Brazilian dance, or if you want to hone the basics. It’s a great workout as well! All classes feature LIVE Brazilian music and drumming!    Audience: 12+    / Registration: Drop in or     /  Level: Introductory & All levels  /  Teacher: Janelle Kean Campoverde

    Our classes or performance opportunities:

    • Always have a welcoming atmosphere & perspective that everyone is creative
    • Are multi-sensory wherever possible
    • Emphasize collaboration & creative problem solving
    • Use concept-based lessons, connecting to ideas/concepts students are currently learning or are culturally relevant
    • Whenever possible, use multiple art forms and approaches to integrate brain & body, individual & community
