THE Franco-Namibian Cultural Centre (FNCC) is this week inviting its patrons to travel to Brazil, the realm of many enchanting dances, through its Dancing Cocktails event.
The bimonthly event promises to entertain guests with a night of Brazilian inspired dance and delicious cocktails to keep them going through the night.
“With Brazilian fever as the theme heading the fourth Dancing Cocktails of the year, our instructors from Fusion Funk Studio will be whisking you away through a dancing tutorial with the most beautiful dance styles and sensual music all the way from the Brazilian Culture,” the FNCC said in a statement this week.
On the night, the instructors will teach a variety of Brazilian dances, namely the Samba, Lambada and Forró.
The Samba, a dance closer to home, originates from ancient African tunes and customs and it is still one of Brazil’s most popular music styles. It is performed to hearty samba songs sung in bars to explosive drums and parades performed during carnival. It is aimed at samba evoking a warm and vibrant mood.
Another feel good dance is the Lambada, an Afro- Brazilian dance style that is popular for its particular focus on the hips. This dance is characterised by its high energy and feel good attitude (alegria). Although it is a fast and energetic dance, it flows smoothly and the moves are continuous and rhythmic.
“Forró which means going to party/ going out is not only an enjoyable dance style but also the final word we have for you, come party. What better way to kick off the weekend? Come one, come all, for a beautiful night out, and be a part of this sensational show that does not only promise you new dance moves but a pleasant night of socialising,” the FNCC said urging people to come in large numbers.
The event will take place tomorrow at 19h00 at the FNCC.
A single ticket is selling for N$70 and includes a free glass of wine, bottle of beer or cool drink. The couples’ ticket is selling for N$120 and also includes a drink for each person.
