What is Samba?

A dance of Brazilian origin, Samba was popularised by Western culture around the early 1940s. The dance has a simple forward and back motion, danced to 4/4, syncopated rhythm, which has helped its popularity as it can be an easy dance to master the basic steps of.

Generally, the dance is performed as a duo, with partners staying close to each other for most of the dance and separating briefly to vary the steps. This is a common dance at Carnival and dancers often wear sequined outfits.
