Nothing will amp up the heat of your dancing like a Latin workshop and on June 9th we are offering two. We begin with Salsa in a Circle or Rueda de Casino conducted by Reinier Valdes and Daniela Gallardo of La Clave Cubana and transition into our second which is an Introduction to Forró with Lara Diniz of Forró in Seattle. Lara hails from a region near Rio de Janeiro and is proficient in many social Brazilian dances like like Samba, Bolera and Zouk, but her love belongs to Forró. This passion is further supported through her connection with En Canto, Seattle’s foremost Forró band. Led by Brazilian-born vocalist Adriana Giordano, this septet consists of musicians who play drums, accordions, flutes, triangles, guitars. The musical outcome can be described as delightful and intoxicating and their sultry rhythms will inspire you. Check out Lara on https://www.facebook.com/lara.santos.diniz and https://www.facebook.com/forroinseattle/ and En Canto at https://www.encantobrazil.com/u.
