About Us

Anna and Alex fell in love with forró in 2014 and started giving classes at Forró Aachen in 2017.

Anna discovered her passion for music, rhythm and dance in her early childhood. When getting to know forró, the brazilian couple dance and culture quickly became an important part of her life. In 2016, she traveled to Brazil for the first time to get to know the country and its people better and to attend one of the most famous dance schools for Forró in Belo Horizonte. In addition to Forró, she currently dances Samba de Gafieira, Zouk and Hiphop.

When Alex started to play the guitar at the age of 14, music became an inseparable part of his life. With forró he discovered his passion for expressing music through dancing. His dance style therefore mainly focuses on musicality and the connection between follower and leader while combining fluent arm movements with accentuated footwork.

In 2018, Anna and Alex spent several weeks in Brazil together to develop their dance and language skills and successfully took part in the exams at “pé descalco”. In the beginning, their dance style was mainly influenced by Forró Universitário but soon complemented by Forró Roots while living in Freiburg from 2019 - 2021. Today they like to combine the different styles to match the music and to also incorporate influences from other dances.

They have just returned from their third trip to Brazil with fresh inspirations and are excited to share their dance experiences with you.

Anna & Alex teach ongoing group classes, private classes, give workshops and develop choreographies. They put emphasis on technique, posture and balance such as connection, musicality and creativity, both for followers and leaders. Most important for them is the joy of dancing and a good energy in class and on the dance floor.
