Get Your Blood Flowing and Your Feet Moving With Samba

Samba Costumes Through the Years

Samba has many different variations. That being said, all the variations are a great way to burn off extra energy. Samba can be danced to many genres of music, including Latin American music genres. Although Samba is most prevalent during the Brazillian festival of Carnaval, anyone can take part by signing up for Samba classes at their local dance studio. You don’t need to be in South America to experience Samba! With our virtual “on-demand” dance studio, you don’t even have to be in Glendale, Colorado. Wherever you are, you can take part in one of our Samba classes.

Most of us have a lot of pent up energy from months of quarantine—all the more reason to sign up for some Samba classes.

Energy Release

Since Samba is a faced-past dance, it’s perfect for releasing energies and for feeling more energetic at the same time. Samba classes are incredibly lively and involve plenty of dynamic movements that range from stepping and tilting to rocking body movements.

Regular Samba Dancing Comes with Great Benefits
Samba costumes are super fun and colorful.

Styles of Samba

There are different styles of Samba classes, but all of them have the same benefits.

Samba no Pe – This type of Samba is a solo dance involving improvised movement. The dance follows the rhythm of the music, and the music ranges from an average pace to a quicker pace.

Samba Reggae – These Samba classes are done to Reggae music. This type of Samba originated in Africa. They are usually quicker paced to go along with the percussion-heavy music. There is generally a leader who dances, and then the crowd follows along.

Samba Axe – This type of Samba originated in Brazil. The dance is fully choreographed and the movements usually go along with the music.

No matter which Samba style you decide to try, you will quickly fall in love with how it makes you feel.

Why Student Showcases Are So Important For Community & Confidence Building

Join the Best World Dance Studio in Denver

Why Student Showcases Are So Important For Community & Confidence Building

Student showcases are a wonderful way for families and friends of the dancers to come together and encourages feelings of mutual support and pride. Performing can be a wonderful experience, but at the same time, it can be scary! Our commitment at Bella Diva Dance is to ensure that the experience is as rewarding as possible with a special team mentality. Every experience (good and bad!) will teach us something, and patience, encouragement, and support on all sides are important. Practice makes perfect, and performing isn’t any different. The more one does it, the more relaxed one will become on stage or in front of other people. Everyone will always feel nervous or get “butterflies” in their stomach before going on, but her/his performance will eventually become more relaxed and confident. Ultimately, the confidence you gain from performing will spill over into other areas of your life… sometimes in ways that you don’t even realize!

Dancers build lasting memories and friendships with one another. Maybe it’s the work or long hours together, or maybe it’s because you’ve each given so much of yourself, but it always happens. Wherever you go, when you spot that other dancer in the room (and you will), you’ll know you have something in common. That shared experience is part of a rich history of tradition and innovation that unites dancers all over the world. And, because dance is tied deeply to the roots of our communities and cultures, dance builds awareness and appreciation of the differences and similarities between people. This makes you a better citizen of the world.
