It is Samba week here. So we thought the history of this wonderful dance might interest some of you...
Remember: this Saturday Samba workshop, Sunday 6 week progressive class on Samba start - more info and registration at http://www.cheek2cheek.net/group.html

Samba history extract:
The Portuguese imported many slaves from Angola and Congo into Brazil in the 16th century, who in turn brought their dances such as the Caterete, the Embolada and the Batuque. These dances were considered sinful by the Europeans as they involved the touching of navels. The Embolada is about a cow with balls on its horns for safety, and became a term meaning 'foolish'. The Batuque became so popular that Manuel I passed a law forbidding it. It was described as a circle dance with steps like the Charleston done to hand clapping and percussion, and with a solo couple performing in the center of the circle.
A composite dance evolved in the 1830's combining the plain figures from these dances and the body rolls and sways of the indigenous Lundu. Later, carnival steps were added like the Copacabana (named after a popular beach near Rio de Janeiro). Gradually members of the high society in Rio embraced it, although they modified it to be done in closed ballroom dancing position (which they knew was the only correct way to dance anything).
