JUBA DANCE JAM

Open dance session with members of the dance collective Juba do Leão.

Perfect for anyone who’s always wanted to give Carnival dance a try, through to more experienced dancers wishing to extend their understanding of Pernambucan dance styles from the North of Brazil. Percussionists welcome too, yay! (just as dancers are welcomed to our Juba Jam drumming sessions).
