Ginga Brasileira

This professional ensemble performs a colorful, crowd-pleasing repertoire of Afro-Brazilian dances that fuse rhythmic music with high-energy gymnastics and martial arts.

The ensemble performs Capoeira, a martial art dance form developed in Brazil by 16th-Century slaves that is punctuated by fast footwork, daring leaps, and split second timing. Also featured are Maculele, a stick dance created by African slaves working on Brazilian sugarcane plantations, and Samba, Brazil’s national dance.
