JAM Session & Concert - Samba Dance
Dance to the beat, play an instrument, and experience something unexpected with JAM Sessions, fun, interactive music and dance events hosted in conjunction with the Ford Theatre Foundation. The evening integrates live dance instruction from professional instructors with live band performances.
Wear comfortable clothes and shoes, and bring a chair if you just plan on listening to the music. JAM Sessions are participatory and centered around movement and music. All JAMs are FREE, and all ages and skill levels are welcome.
This month's theme is Samba Dance.
Kick off your shoes and let your body sway to one of Brazil’s most popular cultural expressions - the samba! Viver Brasil Dance Company will help you pick up the rhythms and movements of this lively dance. Live music from Samba Society, who's repertoire features renditions of vintage sambas reminiscent of classic recordings from the 1970s. They are primarily dedicated to the partido alto and samba de terreiro popularized by Rio's "Old Guard" of urban samba.
