CALENDAR OF EVENTS

New York City has a very active forró scene, taking place in venues that range from a Lower East Side nightclub, a Brooklyn Brazilian Restaurant, dance class socials, special events at parks to the Lincoln Center.

More recently New York also became the host of forró festivals and the Forró New York Weekend (produced by the Forró New York Association)

 

Different venues hosted forró parties and event thru the years.

Nowadays a few venues host weekly live bands (see videos and info below the calendar).

Weekly dance classes and special workshops are also a great option to - not just learn and practice new moves - but also to get to know other forrozeiros and make new friends.
