Forró is the hip-swinging partner dance from North-East Brazil, originating in the early 1900s, using influences from Salsa and other Latin-American dances. These days, Forró is an integral part of Brazilian culture, with many Brazilians learning the dance and spreading it around the world.
Forró is a close partner dance, and many of the moves require close connection between the two dancers to create the fluid and beautiful movements we can see on the dancefloor!
We start every Forró night off with first steps, so any beginners can learn the basic movements and anyone else can brush up on them! Just 10 minutes with us and you’ll be dancing the dance of happiness well into the evening!
