We are happy & privileged to announce Camila Alves as teacher will be doing workshops at the Forró Dublin Festival!
Most of you will be familiar with Camila. She is a force of nature in the Forró community and we are delighted she has decided to come and support our festival.
Story of Camila
Camila was born in Portugal and has always had a great passion for dance.
She started dancing at 14 years old when she came across the Argentine Tango, which she practiced for 3 years, along with 4 years of Salsa. Aside from Tango and Salsa she also did African dances like Kizomba and Semba. In 2010, when she was 17, she set out to explore her dance skills with something new and exciting. At this point, she found out about Forró, falling in love instantly. Since then, she had classes with Pablo Dias, becoming his partner in 2011 and giving classes in dance festivals across the world.
In 2014 Camila decided to pursue her own solo career as a forró teacher and has been teaching in London, where she lives now.
Camila develops an interesting side of lady styling and mixed classes, where she encourages women and men to explore a different side of dance.
