Dancer Isaura Oliveira
Instructor Isaura Oliveira introduces the dances of the Orixas
in a class on Afro-Brazilian dance on February 26, from 1 to

warm-up for the class includes a system of progressive physical
conditioning, incorporating yoga asanas for muscles, flexibility,
strength, and building self-confidence. The dances selected
will be from Baiana cultures, such as Orixas, Samba, and Afoxe,
and the special movements from Oliveira's own choreography repertoire.
