Cuerpaso Workout

Regarding the past month and a half: You came. You saw. You ate - everything in sight.

And now Santa's not the only one with a jelly belly.

Take that belt back a few notches with Cuerpaso, a 50-minute workout that combines soccer and Latin dance for an ass-kicking you'll never forget. (After the first time, your legs will kill.)

In today's video, Tadeo Arnold, the sweet-as-he-is-muscled creator, gives us a taste of his fitness regimen. Right now, he's offering six weeks of the class for just $100 at Reebok's swanky UWS location - no membership required.

After the series is over, he promises you'll be able to rock a thong on the beach with pride.

Just don't let him know you're stocking the cooler with pie.


Available at Reebok Sports Club/NY, 160 Columbus Avenue, at 67th Street (212-362-6800). Classes run every Thursday, 5:30-6:20 p.m., for six weeks, starting January 14. To reserve a spot, call 212-501-1476.

Quenia's Samba Workshops at Alvin Ailey

Hi Everyone

Happy New Year 2010 .. I hope your is off to a good start.

In celebration of the upcoming Brazilian Carnaval we are holding
workshops on Sunday February 7th at Alvin Ailey Extension.

There is a page at the Ailey Extension site with details . You can
pay online for the full workshop or pay for individual classes at the
Extension. You also have the option of taking my (Quenia's) regularly
scheduled class on that day ( that will be 4 to 5:30pm special Samba
Da Bahia class )

http://www.alvinailey.org/page.php?p=arti&v=645

The workshop will feature

12noon - 1:30pm: Samba Drumming with Nick Birmelin

Learn to play percussion in the style of a Samba Reggae bloco from
Salvador. Open to all levels, this workshop will focus on fundamental,
hands-on techniques that will enable you to play Samba Reggae. This 1
1/2 hour workshop will show you the function of each instrument and
the breaks within an instrumental arrangement. The workshop will be
taught by Nick Birmelin, musical director of Grupo Ribeiro.

Instruments will be provided for a $5 rental fee. The supply is
somewhat limited, so if you have one of your own ( snare, surdo,
tamborim, timbau, repinique), please feel free to bring it!

2:00 - 3:00pm: Samba in Platform Heels Workshop with Quenia

Dance Samba like a Carioca with a native of Rio de Janeiro. This
special workshop focuses on dancing Samba no Pe in high heels. Learn
to samba like the passistas do in a true Escola de Samba. This
long-awaited workshop will benefit everyone who wants to dance all
night in platform high heels. Quenia will give pointers to prevent
embarrassing slips and falls and will help you gain the confidence to
Samba like a true “Carioca da Gema.”

4:00 - 5:30pm: Samba Reggae/Samba DaBahia* with Quenia

Celebrate Bahia with a class dedicated to the dances from the
birthplace of Samba. This 1 1/2 hour high energy class focuses on the
different variations of Samba from Bahia, including Samba de Roda,
Samba Reggae and Samba Afro.

On another note we have rehearsals for the upcoming Student Show!!!
The show will be on March 6th 2010. We are hoping to have a fairly
large turnout and it will be held in a beautiful theater this year!!

If you are one of my students who is interested in participating in
the show you can let me know in class

to sign up. Or email me at Gruporibeiro@sambany.com. Rehearsals will
be held every Friday at Ailey ( the times vary)

1/15 7 to 9pm

1/22 8:30 to 10pm

2/5 7 to 9pm

2/12 8 to 10pm

2/19 7 to 9pm

This is our own Grupo Ribeiro Event so if you have any questions
related to the student show please direct them to me at
Gruporibeiro@sambany.com. I will keep you updated about the show. This
is your chance to show your friends and family your samba skills!!

Beijos
