A Sensual Journey to Brazil - A Weekend of Dance!
Saturday August 11, 2012
Vanessa Isaac Brings Brazil's Hottest Export to Santa Barbara in August
Award-winning dancer and choreographer Vanessa Isaac of Hip Brazil will take you on an intoxicating
journey to Brazil by way of Brazil's hottest export: dance. Learn the fundamentals of true Rio-style
Samba; explore the hypnotic rhythms of Samba Reggae and the Afro Blocos da Bahia - the same
rhythms that have seduced dancers and musicians around the world; and experience the powerful
movement of contemporary Brazilian dance through Vanessa's signature style of teaching.
The renowned UCSB Afro-Brazilian Music Ensemble, led by the multi-instrumental talent of Music
Director Matt Wright, will provide the hypnotic Brazilian rhythms, and Saturday night will culminate in a
"Journey to Brazil" party at Red's, with legendary party-starter DJ Fab spinning his sexy-cool Brazilian
beats well into the night.
If you are seduced by the rhythms of Brazil, if you love the joy that Vanessa's group brings to the
Solstice Parade every year, or if you simply love to dance, then this is not an event to be missed! All
workshops will be taught by Vanessa herself.
Important note that this is an event open to EVERYONE. Dancers and non-dancers alike.
Book your ticket now!
