…the RIO Carnival Inspired 2022

In the 16th century, enslaved Africans worked the plantations of South America. Over time, the cultures of indigenous native Americans and Africans merged and Samba evolved from what was initially an attempt to preserve culture. Samba became a way of celebrating this blended identity and is performed in every major city in the world. Samba Is Life!


Samba is a lively and colorful dance that originated in Brazil. It is popular during carnival when the dancers wear elaborate-feathered costumes. Although it is often danced alone, the term ‘Brazilian waltz’ has been used to refer to partner samba dance. You can experience this wonderful dance at the Fitness 1 Gym in The City at Airport Square or meet Akua for your personal lessons.
