Dança de Orixás (afro-brazilian) workshop with Benjamin Abras.

The 15th, 16th,17th and 18th of March 2018.

These 4 days of workshops will be treating the rythm ‘Ijexá’ and ‘Dança de Orixás’ the dances of the afro-brazilian Gods.
Ijexá is the rythm present in the divinity of the dance movements of the Goddess ‘Oxum’. She is the goddess of fresh water, beauty and the divinity of the effects of love.

Danças de Orixás is a legacy of the african diaspora (the transfer of millions of africans to the american continent to be used as slaves)
To dance the Ixejá is to surrender yourself to the power of the feminine movements, and to follow the energi of the wawes that leads you to move all the impulses and muscles in your body from your head and through your back, arms, fingers, torax, legs and feets.
All workshops will be focusing on the movements and the dançes of the afro-brazilian Gods (orixás)
