Participatory meeting on Forró pedagogy

The last years have seen Forró groups popping up in every corner of Europe. People from all over the place want to learn Forró and be part of the community. A crucial role in this process falls to the teachers who are mostly the first contact beginners have with Forró  in Europe. Quite often the teachers are experienced dancers who are pushed to share a little bit of their knowledge and learn how to teach by themselves.

The Encontro pedagógico participativo de forró tries to bring these teachers together and create a space for exchange where experiences can be shared, questions discussed and new approaches developed. Today we are talking to Sarah Colligns, one of two creators of this concept about the two meetings which happened in August 2017 an March 2018.

Motivation for dance & live recordings

In this episode we will analyze the conclusions of the questionnaire “Motivation to dance Forró” and present some live recordings from Italia Roots, Weggis and Freiburg. You will have the chance to listen to Fabiano Santana, Everton Coroné, Trio Xamego and Mariana Mello. In the second hour we played the full concert of Nando Nogueira which is unfortunately not available online.
