The Samba originated in Brazil and is the party dance of Rio.
It is still danced extensively in Brazil, although the Samba that
is danced in the Ballrooms and International competitions around
the world is a far cry from the party dance of Brazil.
The Samba is one of the few progressive Latin
dances. The music is lively and fun and the dance is often a
popular choice amongst social dancers. Energetic and fun to
learn to dance.
It is one of the five dances used in International
competition style Latin American. Most recently it will have
been seen in the UK on the hit BBC TV series Strictly Come Dancing.
