ANNOUNCEMENT

Last updated 2020-03-13

We, Forró Stockholm organizers, have decided to postpone our classes until further notice due to Covid-19 situation.

We are aware that the virus is not dangerous to everyone. However, it’s on us to protect our elders and the ones with the lower immune system.

Meanwhile, Forró Stockholm joins the #DanceAtHomeToPrevent movement by Espaço Baião to keep our community active and aware. Stay tuned for tips on how to practice at home!

We have many dances to look forward to. So stay safe and responsible!
Yours
Forro Stockholm Organizers

LOCATION

The venue is located on the lower ground floor in a tower-block building, on the backside! Above the front door is a large gray entrance sign with the ccap and c.off logos. Ring the door bell if the entrance is closed.

It is less than 5 mins walk from T-bana Tekniska Högskolan. The nearest bus stop is Körsbärsvägen (bus 61) or Valhallavägen (bus 4). Along the way there are several small plate signs that show you the direction to the ccap/c.off space where we hold the classes.


ABOUT THE TEACHERS

Luiz is from Minas Gerais in Brasil. He has been living and dancing forro in Stockholm for several years and has developed his own style of forro mixing Forro universitario and forro itaunas, focusing in a playful and enjoyable dance, with the motto that forro should always be fun!

Martim comes from Sao Paulo, Brazil’s largest city and with a historical samba culture that rivals Rio. He has danced gafieira for many years and has participated as a student and teacher in open social projects in Sao Paulo. Given his background, he prefers a more relaxed approach to teaching to get people to love gafieira and to think it is easy despite it relatively high technical difficulty.


TEACHER ASSISTANTS

Johanna has a solid background in Swedish folk dance and is currently studying Dance Pedagogy at Stockholm Konstnärliga Högskola (SKH) and is a member of Forró Stockholm Board.

Katja has been dancing forró and gafieira for several years now, She is the Board Director of Forró Stockholm and a well known forrozeiro on the European festival scene and a frequent visitor in Brasil. Her focus is on core balance and connection.

Kristina got introduced to forró in London back in early 2000, she spent a couple of years as a volunteer in the lindy hop scene, before joining the new forró scene in Sthlm over 5 years ago. Once introduced to gafieira she has been working hard to create a gafieira scene in Stockholm together with the Forró Stockholm team.
