Samba No Pe
Samba no pé ("samba in the foot") is an Afro Brazilian solo dance that is one the most traditional Brazilian Popular Dance. It is danced by people of all ages and gender. The basic movement involves the whole body, but the focus of the movement is in the intrinsically footwork. The dance simply follows the beat of the music and can go from average pace to very fast. There are also regional forms of the dance in Brazil where the essential steps are the same, but because of a change in the accent of the music people will dance similar movements to the slightly changed accents.
