Afro-Brazilian Dance – Taught by Kebrina
Samba Colorado is Colorado’s 1st Brazilian dance school and company founded and directed by Kebrina Josefina De Jesus in 2013 in Boulder, CO. We are devoted to bringing together people from all walks of life in an artistic, educational, positive-spirited community by sharing the deeply rooted traditions and culture of Afro-Brazilian music and dance. We are a diverse family, built with the belief that the arts have the power to heal, by connecting us to our ancestors and releasing us from past trauma, stereotypes, and oppression. We are committed to accompany our students on this journey.
Dance is for everyone, regardless of race, gender, or orientation. We embrace and welcome all ages, body types, and ethnicities. Our mission is to educate, promote healing, and build community through dance, music, ancestral stories, and through arts education. Our vision is to create a safe space for people to learn, express themselves and grow through dance and movement as a vehicle of healing arts. We believe in working together to bring axé and the power and Spirit of the African Diaspora through Brazilian dance and culture to our lives. We offer weekly classes, workshops, and educational programming in Colorado as well as cultural performances for both community and private events.
