Silva Technique (Brazilian-Capoeira-Modern Fusion) Workshop
Mon 9-10:30pm
Aug 2 and 9

Afro Brazilian Dance Workshop
Mon 9-10:30pm
Aug 16 and 23

Leandro da Silva (Professor Alegria) was born in Salvador, Bahia (Brazil). He currently lives in New York City (NY), where he teaches capoeira (an Afro-Brazilian martial art incorporating dance and acrobatics) and Silva Technique, his own unique blend of afro-brazilian dance, capoeira and contemporary dance. A professionally trained dancer of various styles and capoeirista, Leandro da Silva has toured internationally for several years as a member of the highly acclaimed company Dance Brazil ( 9 years NY/Bahia), Brazarte Dance Company (Miami-FL), Cleo Parker Robinson Dance (Denver-CO), Orquestra Popular da Bahia (Brazil), and Ballethnic Dance Company (Atlanta-GA). He has also participated as director and choreographer of National Black Arts Festival (Atl-GA) and assistant choreographer of Fox's hit series "So You Think You Can Dance" (Canada). ?Visit his websiate at www.alegriacad.com

Class Description?Silva Technique is a fusion of Brazilian Contemporary dances with a strong emphasis on Capoeira movements, and modern dance foundations. It has been revolutionizing dance in the world today and has been made popular by professional companies such as Dance Brasil. Modern dance technique has for many years shown the quality and harmony of dance and the body. Capoeira is a Brazilian martial arts fighting style, but at the same time is a dance incorporating your swing or "ginga" and acrobaticism. Together the mix of Brazilian rhythms and accents with Modern dance technique and Capoeira are forming a new comtemporary movement. Previous dance experience is recommended.

Janete has appeared as a dancer on star singer Ivete Sangalo's recent DVD who will be performing at Madison Square Garden in NYC on September 4th.

She also travels regularly for bookings and has most recently participated in the Lowell Folk Festival (Lowell) and National Black Arts Festival (Atl, GA), the Brazilian Independence Day Celebration (Atl, GA), Target's Super Sabado! at El Museo del Barrio, and the Houston Brazilian Festival. Website:www.alegriacad.com

Class Description?Afro-Brazilian dance is full of spontaneous, soulful, exotic, and energetic movement that will energize your body and spirit.

In this class, you will learn to develop rhythm & coordination, stay fit, relieve stress, and of course learn about Brazilian culture. ?Styles include: Samba, Samba de Roda, Axé, Afro-Brazilian, Sambareggae, Afoxé and Orixas.
