Samba de Gafieira is a fun partner dance style sometime called “Happy Tango”.

The music is generally up-beat, creating a little spring in your step. At The Dance Factory we teach beginners the fundamentals through the traditional techniques, but mix the music up playing both modern and traditional styles. Samba de Gafieira is a very flexible dance. You can dance to 2 different rhythms, so you can dance at a slower pace or a faster pace depending on how you feel. The fundamentals can be built on and played with by leaders, and followers have the opportunity to add “embellishments” or styling which can be pretty or spectacular.

New Samba de Gafieira block course! Giros (turns)!
New beginner course in Samba de Gafieira (“happy tango”) partner dance. Open to new dancers and experienced. This course is focused on fun with turns. Starting with the fundamentals of samba and progressing through to trickier moves.
