Orixá Dance Class in NYC – August 2016

One of the most frequent inquiries that I receive is whether or not I know of any Candomblé dance classes.  There don’t seem to be any regular classes in NYC, but here’s one to look out for in a couple of weeks.

Just remember that this is theatrical Orixá dance which focuses on rum movements, and not necessarily the xirê.  If you ever get the chance to go to a xirê, do not break out these moves.

The class is being instructed by Cleonice Fonseca at Cumbé.

Here’s a taste of what you can expect from the class.
