"I've tried several dances and forro is the best one. It is relaxed and casual but at the same time dynamic and joyful.


The forro community is super welcoming and inclusive.


I'd definitely recommend anyone to check out these classes."

Genevieve Marie Aidala, NYC

"Forró is so much fun! From day 1 I was greeted with a friendly, fun community and soon was hooked.

I’ve met some of a lot of cool people dancing forró and have had a lot of fun.


Seriously highly recommended for anyone to try!"
