ABOUT THE TEACHER
Lara is from Niterói (Rio de Janeiro state) but learned how to dance forró in the various forró parties during her time living in São José dos Campos (São Paulo state) where she went for college. Though she studied (and still studies) other Brazilian social dances such as Samba de Gafieira, Bolero and Brazilian Zouk, her favorite is, and always will be, Forró. She started teaching in São José dos Campos at her university and even taught it for one year when she was living in South Korea. After she came to Seattle, she was waiting for someone else to come and start teaching until she realized that she was that person. Lara dances and teaches as lead and follow and she sometimes gets to teach at forró festivals in the US.
ABOUT EN CANTO
A multi-ethnic, female-led seven-piece, En Canto’s world pop music—a combination of forró, inspired originals and reimagined covers of classic Brazilian hits—commands attention and inspires movement.
