VOA Dance Retreat

Sat 9 February - Wed 20 February 2019
Set your sight. Take flight. Move with freedom. Allow yourself to flow. With time to rest, in a place of peace. To gather. To go deep. To find your truth. To return home, anew. Abieié Dance invites you to join us in Brazil for an immersive and transformational experience...

Bambas Festival

Bambas Festival is the first comprehensive Brazilian Movement Festival in London bringing together master dance teachers, and master drummers to highlight the vastness of Brazilian movement techniques and histories.

Bloco Serafina

Bloco Serafina starts in London a wave of tropical flavour and will shake the city with music, dance and the Brazilian good vibe.

And what have we got that keeps inspiring the ‘gringos’ and make us proud to be Brazilian?

A typical way of living, singing, dancing  so happy-fully unashamed.

Bloco Serafina is now in London to spread this positive energy and cheer you up...


“I am a dancer with two left feet. I wanted to dance but had horrible experiences at other classes. Irineu’s classes are AMAZING: fun, energetic, creative, passionate. The live drumming is fantastic. Thank you Irineu for giving me such courage and delight.” — Bina Revé-Laitschone

A really brilliant teacher, classes are hard work but so much fun, love it!— Adi Esf
