Promo Samba Reggae May 2022

Samba Reggae Summer Challenge

Have you heard of Brazilian Samba or took a beginner classes with us? But never heard of Samba Reggae?

Samba has so many “faces” and styles, and each of them is deeply rooted in the Afro-Brazian culture. Therefore, in May, we decided to present a new challenge & introduce you to Samba Reggae. Samba Reggae is a fun combination of Jamaican Reggae & Brazilian Samba. Great vibes, groovy moves & beats, carnival and community spirit, music that will make you smile & dance. We will learn samba basics & understand the differences in samba no pé and samba reggae footwork, in 6 weeks we will also complete a full choreo to showcase later. As part of the course, we will talk about the history of the dance and its significance in Afro-Brazilian culture. As a culmination of the course, a performance opportunity will be granted as well as a professional videoshoot where our Samba Reggae team will shine.

Register through Baza Dance by finding Monday, May, 16 in the calendar.

Samba Classes post

Samba Heels & Samba Drills

Welcome to 2022 samba season.

We are focusing on improving technique and improvisation skills in February and March 2022. In order to feel better about every aspect of samba dance, Vancouver Samba School introduced a new class – Samba Heels – and also opened Samba Drills class for all L2 students.

What to expect? Greatness and easiness. We are working on helpful drills to improve your samba step, speed and coordination, as well as together we come up with small and fun choreos. This process truly helps to work on that creativity and musicality that every dancer has, as well as it leaves a feeling of satisfaction after we dance as a team.

Samba heels classes bring all your training and dancing to the next level. Starting minute one when we put those beautiful shoes, the exploration of the movement and samba starts. Focusing on feeling free to walk, dance and express when in high heels, learning how to control your steps and transfer body weight in the easiest possible way. All this comes in a very safe and warm space. Come play with us.

Classes Tuesday and Friday, 5- 6.30 pm
Location: One Thousand Rivers Studio
Drop-in rate: 25 CAD

Stretch Flow

Let’s stretch & flow, New Westminster

We are happy to announce our new class, Stretch Flow, at the new location and city, New West.

Over 2 years of teaching Brazilian samba, private classes, fitness, stretch and dance classes, we have been asked many times to get closer to Burnaby, New West and Surrey, etc. With the constant changes, closures and restrictions in 2020-21 it was quite a journey to make it happen. But, finally we have negotiated the best studio in New Westminster and happy to bring a new class to everyone of you.

Please register to enjoy the flow and to start your 1 hour full body flexi-experience. Great atmosphere, music, easy to follow instructions, attention and individual approach to each student, small group training is the way to go. If you have a stretching goal, you might start marking your “before” and check back in 8 classes with “after”.

E-transfer to vancouversambaschool@gmail.com to reserve your spot as there are only 8 spots available.

ConfiDance post

May you dance with ConfiDance

In April, we introduced a new private class that had so much positive feedback and demand. This is a customized class that Yulia has been offering privately since November 2020. In May we will continue to dance with existing private students and will open 5 more spots for new clients.

This class is great to boost your self-esteem, to prepare a surprise dance gift for someone special, to practice moves that you always wanted to learn, but never had anyone to teach or encourage you. It could be a preparation for any performance, event, occasion, it could be a partner dance. We offer this class for teenagers who are somewhat lost in what they want to do after finishing semi-pro sports career (eg., gymnastics, figure skating, etc.). Men have also requested this class to prepare themselves for “Magic Mike” shows at home… Anything that makes you feel awesome when you look at yourself in the mirror and specially when you see your own dance video recordings.

Let’s dance! Book your session here.
