TESTIMONIALS

Seated Samba: Testimonials

I really do enjoy the dances and the music. It's also good to get out and meet with other people, it helps not only in mind but also in body, keeping it supple. I also enjoy learning about the different dance styles, the origins and mythology of the dances.
