Samba Fogo is a non-profit cultural arts organization inspired many years ago by the excitement and beauty of Afro-Brazilian music and dance. For over a decade Samba Fogo has been studying, performing and teaching along the Wasatch Front and the Western United States. Samba Fogo’s mission is to enrich the community and inspire others through live performances, arts education, classes and workshops. Samba Fogo runs a year-round weekly community dance class and quarterly drum workshops open to all ability levels, as well as a summer drum and dance camp for youth. Visit sambafogo.com for more information. “A powerful force combining ritualistic dance and dynamic energy for a spectacular display of Brazilian culture” -Salt Lake City Weekly “Unlike other dance performances, Samba Fogo is not just a spectator sport. The audience was urged to clap along, shout when it suited, and even get up and dance at times. Needless to say, the energy was contagious.” -Salt Lake Magazine
