Samba Challenge

Learn the combo, take the challenge.

This Challenge is dedicated to the memory of George Floyd and to the Black Lives Matter movement worldwide.
#SambaforFloyd #Sambaquarentenachallenge
#sambathome #DanceforChange
As Sambistas we value and honor the history of Afro Brazilian Culture in our movement. We recognize Samba as a dance of resistance and the need to step up and move for change.

Current Samba Challenge will last 3 weeks, we are training it in class together as well as with posted tutorial videos.
Please train and practice the combo at home and then film.
Please share a live or recorded video with friends and family or a loved one. The intention is that we move and share, bringing awareness and dancing in solidarity for a justice and peace.
Please create a video and share with me via social media Facebook or IG @gisellasamba.
Would love to see who will rise up to the challenge!
Please tag and or send to me on Whatsapp (310)754-9213
Our Current Challenge runs through June 22nd
