Dance The Samba!

Dance to Samba Nikki

11 year-old Anika Gupta wows us, as she sashays to the SAMBA. Nikki started learning dance in Singapore & continues to pursue her passion in London.

? Samba is a lively and rhythmic style of dance that originated from Brazil (Bahia) by African slaves, who came mainly from Angola.
? The dance and drumming customs of these enslaved people eventually developed into the Samba.
? The original form of Samba is called Samba de Morro (Morro means hill, & may also refer to the slums located on Rio’s hillsides).
? Samba possibly comes from the word “semba” that in Bantu, (an African language), means belly button or belly button movement.
? Another possible origin could be from the word “sambay”, also in Bantu, which means prayer.
? The Samba usually includes an improvised verse sung by a soloist, followed by a choir.
? One of the most popular steps in Samba is the Bota-Fogo.
? Some pop songs you can dance to are Despacito & Bailando.

?? Today, the Samba is synonymous with Brazilian Carnivals. It is a popular form of dance in many shows & competitions.
