Dancing through Brazil

“I’ve just returned from the most amazing 8 week trip of a lifetime of non-stop dancing across Brasil and Cuba, where many people told me I danced like a local. For me this journey really started 6 years ago when I started my foundation course with Rio Rhythmics learning to dance Samba, Zouk and Salsa and I am so thankful to them for such a fantastic start.

I think learning so many different styles in the Foundation Course from the very beginning has been a great advantage to me as a dancer. I found my confidence grew more quickly as it allowed me to find the different styles which best suited me. It also taught me perseverance which I am grateful for as I struggled with Zouk at first and now it is one of my favourite styles. The course made me a more versatile dancer and I love bringing what I know of the different genres across to create my own style. I also love knowing no matter where I go in the world I can experience the joy that is dancing and meet amazing locals because there will be a style of dancing I know and love.
