Forró Level 1

The 6-week beginner course takes place on Tuesdays from 7 pm to 8 pm at Pinu'u on a donation basis. Here, you will learn the basic steps and the initial basics of Forró, which you can then try out and deepen during the open dance night that follows. Beware, Forró is addictive!

Forró Level 2

In the Level 2 course, we build on the basics and expand your repertoire of movements in the styles of Forró Universitário and Forró Roots. You will learn different rhythms and concepts in partner dance. The focus is on understanding your own body as well as approaching initial dance techniques. After this course, you will be well-prepared to have a lot of fun on the dance floor. The course takes place on Thursdays from 7:30 pm to 8:30 pm at fabric. You can book a single weekly course, our danceflat, or a 10-session card for participation in our courses.

Forró Level 3

For the Level 3 course, you should have at least six months of dance experience. Level 3 is an ongoing course, where varied figures and sequences are introduced throughout the 12-week duration of each unit. Therefore, dancers with many years of experience who want to learn new concepts or expand their repertoire are also welcome. After completing the Level 3 course, your dance partners will feel secure in your arms. You will be able to interpret the music with movements, maintain your balance, isolate body movements, dance to different rhythms, and gain initial insights into backleading. The course takes place on Mondays from 8 pm to 9 pm at fabric. You can book a single weekly course, our danceflat, or a 10-session card for participation in our courses.

Forró Level 4

The Level 4 course is designed for forrozeir@s with at least one year of dance experience. There is no upper limit here because this course will always have new content for you. Mastery of basics such as posture, embrace, our body axis, and balance in open dance positions as well as during turns should be very well internalized at this stage. Challenging sequences will be taught, with a focus on agility, musicality, connection, and understanding and applying various corpos de dança (dance bodies). Additionally, we emphasize finding and solidifying your own dance style at this level. The course lasts at least six months. Once it has been successfully completed by several dancers, we will open a Level 5 course for you.

Free dancing

On Tuesday evenings from 8 pm to 10 pm, we offer an open dance night on a donation basis at Pinu'u for you. There, you can review learned course contents, practice together, or simply meet like-minded people for a chat. We are here for you if you have any questions about learned figures or techniques.

Fitness for Dancers

In the Fitness for Dancers course, we keep our bodies healthy, ensuring that we can dance for many years with endurance. Here, we will perform targeted exercises to strengthen our muscles, discuss proper body posture during dance and in everyday life, and exchange ideas on topics such as healthy nutrition and mental well-being. Those who dance a lot should always listen to their bodies and pay attention to a well-balanced training routine.
