ABIEIÉ Dance Method (regeneration from the Yorùbá language)
For more than 15 years Irineu has developed his own dance language worldwide. He experiments in a contemporary form, Brazilian dance styles with expressions of African rhythms.
ABIEIÉ Afro-Brazilian Dance is a fun, motivating, aerobic dance class that through the fusion of Brazilian and African rhythms and a large variety of movements created and adapted by Irineu Nogueira, develops strength, coordination, muscle tone, stamina, flexibility and an understanding and sense of rhythm.
Samba is both a type of music and dance originating from the rhythms and traditions brought to Brazil by African slaves. It encompasses a range of styles, from the fast samba (batucada) played and danced in the Mardis Gras of São Paulo and Rio, to the funkier samba reggae favoured in Salvador and North Eastern Brazil.
Styles: Carnival Samba, Samba Reggae, Samba de Roda, Samba Duro and Samba do Recôncavo.
