Journey to Salvador August 2019: Afro-Brazilian Dance Intensive

Bahia In Motion invites you to join us on our next Journey to Bahia, Brazil!

Journey to Salvador: Afro-Brazilian Dance Intensive
Dates: August 12th-26th 2019 (arrive in Salvador 8/13/arrive Seattle 8/26)
Cost: $1900*

This year in August we will be offering a Dance Intensive trip to Salvador, Bahia. This trip is designed for travelers who would like to go deeper in his/her studies of Afro-Brazilian dance in the heart of Afro-Brazilian culture in Brazil. As we explore the rich history of Salvador and experience its delicious cuisine, warm smiles and streets pulsating with Bahian rhythms, you will have the unique chance to study with master teachers in Afro-Brazilian dance and music. Our trip will also include an excursion to the city of Cachoeira for the Festa da Boa Morte.

The dance and music classes in Salvador are suitable for those who are in the beginning or intermediate/advanced stages of studying Afro-Brazilian dance. Our physical activity will be moderately demanding, but there will be down time as well for reflection, journal-writing, hammock time, swimming in Bahia's waters, and exploring the historical district of Pelourinho on your own.

Daniel Nery dos Santos and Aileen Panke, co-owners and directors of Bahia In Motion, look forward to being your hosts for our August 2019 Journey to Bahia. Daniel is a native of Salvador and truly delights in sharing the culture of Bahia-his home for 31 years before moving to the United States in 2008. Daniel and Aileen have led groups to Bahia since 2010, providing a unique "insider" view to their trips. Bahia's arms are ready to welcome you and we look forward to being your hosts!
