The Franco Namibian Cultural Centre this week announced it is hosting an evening of Brazilian dance for the entertainment of Windhoek residents.
“The FNCC invites you to yet another fun and exciting night of Dancing Cocktails as we bring you another entertaining dancing experience from around the world, while sipping on delicious Cocktails on Friday, August 5th at 19h00” the centre said in a statement.
With the upcoming Olympics in Brazil, all the world’s attention is now on Brazilian culture. Dancing Cocktails shows the rich history of dancing in Brazil and the undeniable influence of Africa on the most famous dance styles.
“With “Brazilian fever” as the theme heading the fourth Dancing Cocktails of the year, our instructors from Fusion Funk Studio will be whisking you away through a dancing tutorial with the most beautiful dance styles and sensual music all the way from the Brazilian Culture.”
Samba, a dance close to home, originates from ancient African tunes and customs and it is still one of Brazil’s most popular music styles. Performed to hearty samba songs sung in bars to explosive drum parades performed during carnival, samba always evokes a warm and vibrant mood.
Inviting the audience to participate, the FNCC said “feel good while dancing to Lambada, an afro-Brazilian dance style that is popular for its particular focus on the hips. This dance is characterized by its high energy and feel good attitude (alegria). Although it is a fast and energetic dance, it flows smoothly and the moves are continuous and rhythmic.”
“Forró which means going to party or going out is not only an enjoyable dance style but also the final word we have for you, Come party!”
What better way to kick off the week end? Come one, come all, for a beautiful night out, and be a part of this sensational show that does not only promise you new dance moves but a pleasant night of socializing.
