Kick-off to the Colorado Brazil Fest!

Samba Colorado: Since its founding in 2013, Samba Colorado is devoted to bringing together people from all walks of life in an artistic, educational, and positive community by sharing the joy and beauty of Brazilian culture and dance. We offer classes, workshops, dance residencies as well as energetic and exciting performances for both community and private events. We are an equal opportunity organization welcoming all ages, orientations, races, body types, and ethnicities.

Bateria Alegria is the primary performing ensemble of the Boulder Samba School, composed of 20-30 percussionists and led by Music Director Carl Dixon. The ensemble plays percussion-based styles of music from Rio de Janeiro (samba batucada) and Salvador (samba reggae). The music incorporates a mixture of African, European, and indigenous influences and traditions. These styles of music are traditionally played during the carnival parades throughout Brazil and can be heard in Brazilian concert stages, dance clubs, neighborhoods, and soccer matches.

Luciana Da Silva: Native Brazilian Luciana da Silva shares Brazilian dance with audiences and students around the world as presenter, collaborator, performer, and teacher. Join Luciana where femininity, rhythm and authentic culture meet a need for fun and human connection, where women and men long to develop these qualities in their dancing, and where children and seniors want to learn the joyful culture of Brazil.
