I had such a fun time learning Forró for my first time at Rio & Learn. Clara, our professora, told us a bit about the origins of Forró and how it is popular in Salvador. Castrinho, the dance instructor, was great at demonstrating the movement at a pace that everyone could enjoy. Best of all, it was fun to learn with fellow students and to practice português during class. I had the best time and highly recommend it as a great ice-breaker to your learning experience!

The students started the class in a shy way, but were soon wonderfully guided by the amazing Professor Castrinho. It was possible to learn the basic steps of forró, dance so famous in the northeast region of the country, and practice Portuguese at the same time! With engaging music and dancing, we had a pleasant afternoon moving the body and laughing a lot together.
