We teach 'Samba de Gafieira'
in Brussels


'Samba de Gafieira' is a Brazilian partner dance born in the early 20th century in Rio de Janeiro.

It is influenced by various dance styles, from African to European, and danced to the sound of samba rhythms, samba rock, 'chorinho', Bossa Nova and MPB (Música Popular Brasileira).

Thanks to its beauty and elegance, as well as leg extensions, it is often compared to the well-known Argentinian tango.
