Soltinho
Soltinho means "A Little Loose". This style is relatively new and is a very balanced mixture of jive, swing and rock. People who wish to learn Brazilian dance usually start with Soltinho as there is less technique involved which makes the dance steps easy to learn and it can be danced to various forms of music.

Bolero
Known as the official "Dance of Love", there are two theories related to the origin of Bolero. One credits the Spanish people for inventing it, and the other says that it originated in Cuba and was popularized by Mexicans. When Bolero came to Brazil, it was heavily influenced by Tango which gave it some new dance steps and variations.

Forró
Is the most popular genre of music and dance in Brazil’s Northeast, to the extent that historically “going to the Forró” meant simply going to party or going out.

It's not essential to bring a partner, but the more the merrier!

Pilates

Pilates is a non-impact form of body conditioning suitable for young, old, physically active and even sedentary participants. Participants with existing or previous back injuries should bring a doctor's letter of clearance to participate. These classes are not recommended during pregnancy or for individuals with injuries, particularly back or neck pain.

The 8 Principles of Pilates:

Concentration
Concentration is needed to learn new habits. "It is the mind itself which controls the body."

Breathing
Thoracic breathing (breathing into the upper back and armpits) is
important to maximise abdominal control and to mobilize the ribcage and spine.

Centring
The centre is described as the space between your ribs and your hips at the back, the front and the sides of the torso.
If the deep abdominal muscles are strong there is less load on the lower back. A strong centre is important to maintain good control and balance as a whole.

Control
Without concentration and control, the bodies' stronger muscles will tend to do all the work (and stay strong).
The weaker muscles tend to remain relatively unused and remain weak. It is control over the weaker parts of the body that
improves strength.

Isolation
Once there is better control over the weaker muscle groups, more control over those muscles can be obtained and increased isolation of these muscles can be obtained to gain strength.

Precision
Work "smarter not harder". Pilates is extremely precise to help you learn to use the muscles the way they were designed - developing good posture and a comfortable fit body.

Flowing Movement
Fluent movement while exercising leads to fluent movement while not exercising. Sharp movement can and should be eliminated to reduce any long-term wearing effects on the joints.

Integration
Integration of each Pilates movement creates the complete class.
