What is Forró?
Forró is the name of both a musical genre and a dance style from the north-east of Brazil.
It first came to national attention in Brazil in the 1940s, thanks to Luiz Gonzaga, and as a living, breathing culture it has been evolving ever since.
Learn more about forró and how it came to Brussels!
Our regular forró classes are currently on pause due to the strict measures in place to slow the spread of covid-19 in Belgium. They will restart as soon as it is safe to do so!
In the meantime, you can check out all the practical information, including how to sign up, right here.
We will keep you dancing, no matter what! We are organising a series of fun online classes for the coming weeks.
And if the saudade for the dance floor is too great, we have a wonderful opportunity for you - dive into the culture of forró instead in collaboration with Fernando Correa.
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.
Meet the rest of the team!
