Forró with Fernanda
Last saturday night the 20th of february, the brazilian party ‘Brazil for All’ was thrown by one of our professors at brazilian studies, Fernanda Gláucia. The party started at eight o’clock in the evening at Casa Carola in Aarhus C. The participants had the opportunity to try out some brazilian snacks, ex pão de queijo or coxinha de frango, and then pour it down with a delicious, cold caipirinha. Afterwards, to burn the calories away again, you were able to try out the sweaty, hot brazilian dance: “forró”. The original plan was that a friend of Fernanda should have held a workshop in the dance, but unfortunately he wasn’t able to come. Lucky for us, Fernanda took the chance to show off her amazing forró moves and in a minute the dancefloor was filled. Although it was very crowded and really hot, the workshop was so fun and because of the heat it almost (!) felt that we were in Brazil!
After Fernanda finished the workshop, the party continued with music by the DJ Mauro Cardoso, playing all kinds of great brazilian music such as samba, axé, pop and so on. It was a very brazilian and good night, a huge thanks to Casa Carola and Fernanda... the best forró dancer, we know!
