Capoeira: An ancient art originating from Brazil in the 1500's by the African slaves who disguised combat into what seemed like a dance that has since been refined and passed down throughout generations. The roots of this art run deep within Brazil as the presence of unity, music and triumph  are what continue to power this community and this way of life.

Samba: Tuesday's 7:00 PM - $10 per class  

The history of Samba directly coincides with that of Capoeira; used by the African slaves in Brazil to throw off the appearance of fighting into a mere expression of dance; this rich style of dancing is practiced to this day. Designed for all levels samba class starts with a warm up that exercises basic isolation of the body. Followed by stretching and strengthening exercises.  The whole class is taught to the sound of the upbeat and irresistible Brazilian music. Be ready to sweat!  Come feel the Brazilian vibes in a very active and spontaneous class and learn the popular and traditional dance of Samba from Brazil. 

Viva La Femme is a sensual, upbeat afro-latin dance fusion performed to an eclectic playlist of R&B, Neo-soul, 70’s Funk, deep House, Latin Jazz, and Afro-Beat.

Viva La Femme is taught in an intimate, dimly lit room, under the glow of red lights.  Heels are suggested, particularly those worn for ballroom/salsa classes, or a practical heel with ankle support, like a bootie. Please keep in mind, this is an aerobic, sensual fitness class. You will burn calories and sweat!  Please wear appropriate and comfortable dance/yoga attire and shoes.

Class can be performed with a yoni egg to intensify the pelvic floor exercises.  Students will learn exercises they can take home and receive holistic lifestyle tips to improve energy levels, intimacy and quality of life.
