WHO ARE WE
Meet Sarah and the team
Sarah fell in love with forró while living in Milan and she hasn’t looked back since. Building on her experience in sports and language education, Sarah launched and started to teach forró classes in Brussels in 2014.
She now teaches regular classes in Brussels and Ghent, as well as travelling all over Europe and occasionally beyond to teach at workshops and festivals.
Sarah's classes emphasise the importance of presence, connection with our partner and musicality. She also prides herself on trying to achieve that oh-so-delicate balance between technique and creativity, precision and freedom, focus and fun.
Simon discovered forró in 2018 in Toulouse and dived straight in, immersing himself in the dance, the music, and the community.
He loves the challenge of breaking down new moves and then practises diligently which creates his signature smooth dance style, whether he's turning universitário-style or exploring the intricacies of roots footwork. In the classroom, he is passionate, detailed-oriented, and untiring - keen to contribute to each student's learning as best he can.
The best way to get to know Andrés is to invite him to dance! One of the most generous dancers around, he's the first to open the dance floor and the last to leave it.
Andrés started dancing forró in 2017, and quickly proved himself a dedicated and curious leader. One of his strongest skills is connection, opening up lots of space for creativity and playfulness on the dance floor. In the classroom, he is laid-back but highly observant, analysing what's going on and providing support wherever necessary.
Charlotte is all about the feeling. Her style of dancing values presence and connection, with a touch of playfulness. Highly committed, she studies hard as both a leader and follower. More recently, she has also put on an organiser hat to keep forró parties rolling in Brussels.
Charlotte's kindness and patience is appreciated in the classroom. She puts students at ease and brings an embodied softness to the space.
Everything Patrick does is clean and precise, providing maximum opportunity to connect with his partner. He's the embodiment of quality over quantity.
He started dancing forró in 2018, bringing his background in salsa, bachata and other dance styles with him. If you fancy a philosophical conversation on couple dancing? Patrick is your guy! And in the classroom, he is exceptionally patient, drawing on his diverse dance experiences to clearly communicate the details with a touch of humour.
If you dance with Valeria, her warm contagious smile will quickly have you inviting her for another three. A forró addict through and through, she is dedicated and passionate about sharing this dance with the world both in the classroom and by organising events.
On the dancefloor, she's fun and expressive whether leading and following. In the classroom, her explanations are clear and to the point, and she has a knack for identifying the details that will turn the execution of a figure from decent into outstanding.
