Samba



Samba is a Brazilian dance. It is recognized around the world as a symbol of Brazil and the Brazilian Carnival.In the US, Samba evolved into a couple’s dance that was standardized as a ballroom dance in 1956, however it still remains a solo dance in Brazil. While ballroom Samba is different than the Samba danced in the streets in Rio during Carnival, they both have the same Afro-Brazilian origins, and ballroom Samba is often danced to the same lively Brazilian music.
