Lambazouk and Samba de Gafieira Work-Shops! Sunday March 6th 12-4pm.
Join us for two special and exciting Lamba-Zouk and Samba Work-Shops with Nathalia!
Lamba-Zouk: 12-3pm: Lambazouk fundimentals!
Lambazouk is one of the two main branches of Brazilian Zouk, and comes out of Sao Palo. This exciting dance form is
high energy, fast, and closer to the original movement of Lambada than the Zouk movement that comes traditionally from Rio De Janiro.
3-4pm: Introduction Samba de Gafieira:
Samba de Gafieira is a form of Brazilian dance done to Samba music, but in ballroom-style partnership.
Nathalia Carbajal was born in São Paulo, Brazil and grew up following the footsteps of her family's passion for dance.
Since her early childhood she has shown interest in dance, attending Ballet and Jazz lessons from the age of 4.
As a teenager she had partner dance training, when she learned different styles of Brazilian ballroom dance,
such as Samba de Gafieira, Forró and Sertanejo. In the meantime she also trained Street Dance and Axé, a folkloric dance from Brazil.
In 2006 she began to study Law, but always kept her dance training as part of her life.
During college she attended a performance arts group for 2 years, having performed at festivals and events.
In 2008 she discovered Zouk, and it was love at first sight. Since then she has been practicing Zouk and its different styles.
In 2013, she moved to Los Angeles and couldn't stop dancing. That's where she met Ivo Vieira and Shani Mayer,
when she kept training Zouk and was introduced to Kizomba. Living in Portland since 2014, she decided to dedicate her life to dance,
getting certified in Zumba, having elaborated her class with a spicy Brazilian flavor.
Her biggest goal is to spread her love for this beautiful dance style and see it getting popular in North America.
