I recently came across Hip Brazil while searching for good articles about Brazil and the Brazilian culture. I was impressed enough to write to Vanessa Isaac, Hip Brazil’s founder and director, and ask if she would be available for a Skype call. What a pleasure it was to speak with Vanessa. She is a vibrant, no-nonsense award-winning dancer and choreographer who has sold over one million copies of her Brazilian Dance Workout DVDs.

This connection could not have come at a more timely moment: Hip Brazil is partnering with amazing dancers and choreographers to offer An Exuberant Weekend of Dance, Wellness and Fun. The dance workshops will take you on a journey to Brazil through samba, samba reggae, afro-Brazilian, and contemporary dance. The weekend events includes a great Saturday night party and a Sunday Brazilian-style brunch. I am sure the weekend will be an unforgettable experience for dancers and non-dancers alike. Divirta-se!
