Brazil Fest is honored to announce dance workshops in Samba no Pé, Samba reggae, and Orixas movements with master teachers Tania Santiago and Luciana da Silva. 11:00AM-12:30PM Samba no Pé (all-levels) with Luciana da Silva In this ALL Levels class you will learn Samba no pé the art form danced specially in Rio de Janeiro. Learn the fundamentals of Samba, proper posture, how to coordinate feet, hips and arms with grace as well as understanding musicality. Native Brazilian, Luciana Da Silva shares Brazilian dances and culture with students around the world as a teacher, presenter and collaborator. 12:45PM-2:15PM Samba-reggae (all levels) with Tania Santiago Samba-reggae has become a popular style of African-influenced dance derived from Afro-Brazilian and candomble dance moves. In a social setting, samba-reggae dances tend to be done in a follow-the-leader fashion, with a few skilled dancers initiating moves in a line in front of the crowd, and the whole crowd then following along. 2:30PM-4:00PM Orixás Movement with Tania Santiago Contemporary movements inspired on Orixás symbology The gods of the Afro-Brazilian Candomblé religion are called Orixás. Dance, drums and song are the basic elements in its religious ceremonies. These rhythms and dance movements are used in dance lessons, stage performances and other non-religious contexts without necessarily following the religious rituals and tenets but with respect for its inherent power and religious symbolism. The pattern of movement in Orixás dances forms the basis for, and is reflected in, all Afro-Brazilian dance and is used regularly in folklore events in Brazil. Tania will create a welcoming environment for all levels of dance. Tania Santiago is from Brazil and is considered a master teacher for Afro Brazilian Dance. For many years, she was a choreographer for the famous Bahian group Olodun in Salvador Bahia, traveling around the world performing and teaching. She is the founder of her dance company Águas da Bahia in San Francisco.
