This course is an introduction to Samba. Deeply enmeshed with Brazil?s colonial history Samba has arisen as a symbol of its cultural and national identity. With dance as our foci, this course will offer an embodied exploration of the racial and cultural mixing at Samba?s root through a study of physical techniques, aesthetics, rhythms and ideology. We will also study the music, history, traditions and socio-cultural context surrounding the dance through readings, videos and discussions.
