September may be fast approaching, but on a forró dancefloor it's always summer all year round! Forró classes offer you the perfect blend of hugs, laughter and music, community vibes, learning and fun.
Whether you are already a forrozeiro or want to discover a new hobby where you can meet cool people and learn something fun, this is the place to be...

FAIR TRADE OPTION
We have a fair trade price for those of you who (if your own budget allows) would like to support us by giving a little extra.
The fair trade option is completely optional (no pressure at all!) and works out at less than 1.30 euros extra per class.
The payment details will display after you click submit and you will also receive them via email within approximately 24 hours. Please arrange for payment to be made as soon as possible and within 7 days of your registration. If we haven't received payment within this period, we will make your place available to someone else.
You don't need a partner to register. We take care of balancing the leaders and followers in each group!
By registering, you confirm you have read and agreed to the terms and conditions.
Every student is different and every level lasts as long as you need it to!
We believe in taking our time and helping students to achieve their full potential on the dancefloor.
We will give you honest feedback about which level will help you learn best based on where you are right now.
As a general guide, most students will spend:
- at least 1 trimester in Level 1
- at least a year in Level 2
- at least a year in Level 3
New students are strongly recommended to start with Level 1. Even if - or especially if! - you have experience in other dance styles ;-)
Level 1 is where we lay solid foundations for the rest of your forró adventure and where you will learn how forró is both similar and different to other couple dances.
If you already dance forró but you're a new student in Brussels, get in touch - we'll do our best to orient you to the most suitable level.
If you have any questions about which level would suit you best, don't hesitate to drop us an email (firstname.lastname@example.org) and we'll help you decide.
