STG’s DANCE This: Pop-Up Workshops are a mixture of in-person and Zoom classes offered in a variety of dance styles for participants ages 13 and older.

Workshops include:

Samba Reggae with Bahia In Motion
Saturday, May 8, 2021
12:00 pm – 1:00 pm
Ages 13 and over
Online via Zoom

Join us for this fun and energetic class as we explore the history, movements and rhythms of Samba Reggae. The Samba Reggae rhythm emerged out of the Civil Rights and Black Pride movements. Samba Reggae is a symbol of Afro-Brazilian pride and plays a very important role in the identity of Afro-Brazilians today. Its rhythms are powerful, joyful and uplifting. The historical contexts of both of these Brazilian dance forms will be discussed. Get ready to dance, sway, sweat and smile!
