Celebrate Summer!

Samba Masterclass

Celebrate Summer! Samba Masterclass is a skills-based, choreography workshop focused on tension release technique. Tension release movements are at the core of Brazilian orixas dance, so it’s little wonder that performers who master this skill, distinguish themselves above the rest!

Workshop Content:

The Dunham Barre: Where Dancers are Made

Shimmy & Roll: A Tension Release Study

Musicality: When You Don’t Have A Clue, Take A Cue


You’ll come away with a useful new tool that fosters growth and provides greater access to the rejuvenating quality of Samba.


San Jose Tahiti Fete

Considered the largest Tahitian dance competition in the United States, the Tahiti Fête of San Jose is a colorful and electrifying Polynesian extravaganza! It focuses on the Polynesian culture, in particular, the dance, music and traditions of Tahiti. Dancers and musicians travel from all over the USA, Mexico, Japan, Canada as well as the Polynesian Islands to participate in this exciting event. 

Alongside the Civic Auditorium corridors, Polynesian artisans offer exquisite Polynesian crafts and Tahitian Black Pearl jewelry. Guest judges from Tahiti will be offering dance and music workshops during the Fete weekend at the San Jose Marriott Hotel.
