Brazilian frevo dance workshop at the Kennedy Center

August 28, 2021 @ 11:00 am - 12:00 pm

Kate Spanos - Recife carnaval

Learn frevo, a high energy Brazilian carnival dance from northeastern Brazil! Kate Spanos of Mexe Com Tudo will teach you some basic frevo steps, with a focus on joyous self-expression. Wear comfortable shoes. All are welcome! The movement will be accessible and adaptable to all abilities.

Mexe Com Tudo is a carnival group in Recife, Brazil founded by Otávio Bastos and Marília Cavalcanti. Mexe Com Tudo offers frevo dance classes to students and student-teachers in Recife and abroad (via Zoom) that focus on freedom of expression, improvisational strategies and the cultural history of frevo. Mexe Com Tudo also has an award-winning YouTube channel dedicated to all things frevo at www.youtube.com/mexecomtudo.

This workshop is part of On Deck: Women Shredding Through Boundaries at the Kennedy Center’s Millennium Stage (outside at the Reach Plaza). This is an all-inclusive festival featuring women in action sports and music. Join us from August 26-28 as the presenters carve out space in the unconventional arenas of jazz and skateboarding for a more equal future together.
