Samba

American Rhythm Samba
Bronze Syllabus

Hello Samba dancers!  Each video link below opens in a new tab or window allowing the option of having more than one open at the same time. Multiple videos are given for each step, when possible, so that the learner has the benefit of different instructional techniques. When a video lesson contains numerous steps, the time at which a particular step begins during the video is noted in parentheses. Videos are chosen based on thoroughness of instruction and demonstration in multiple views. The same Samba step may go by different names as shown below. Suggestions for additional video lessons may be sent to ballroomdancefan@gmail.com.
