I come from São Paulo Brazil, from a family that dances traditional samba and samba rock; since I was a little child I have been involved with dance. Samba & Samba rock was never my true passion however I still enjoyed it, just wasn’t fully in love with it. I danced samba rock with my family until 1990, when a famous lambada singer – Beto Barbosa started playing in São Paulo and I really loved the style of the dance with more rhythm then a traditional samba. I also danced other Latin styles as Axé & Brazilian zouk, but still something was missing. In 1997 I learned about the clubs called Centro Cultural Elenko KVA, Canto da Ema & Remelexo Brasil that were playing a new style of music from the Northeastern culture and that style was called Forró. I started learning how to dance this new dance movement by myself and going to the nights & practicing at home. Slowly using the moves that I learned at home by watching other dancers, I started to put into practice by starting my night at Canto da Ema, then straight to Remelexo and once that closed I would go to KVA to finish the night. My passion was found. Since then, I am constantly working on perfecting my universitário style and combine other forró styles and all my previous dance experiences to enrich Forró. I live & teach in London, founder of FORROZEAR UK group and is associated with other Forró groups such as Forró de Nice and others... I am also Co-founder of Forró de Sexta UK. And I would like to leave a confession over here... i am so passionate about Forró that, once the music starts playing I don't stop dancing until the last song ends!!!!!!! Aiiiiiiiiiiiiii!!!!!!
