    About Forró:
    Forró is a traditional music and dance from the North East of Brazil. The word "Forró" is the short form for "Forróbodo" which means "party".
    The main instruments are the accordion, a drum called zabumba and a triangle. But there can also be different musical ensembles.

    About the Forró Community:
    The Forró community is a vibrant and enthusiastic group of welcoming and friendly people from all over the world.
    In London all the Forró groups are located in the East side. What about starting a new group in the West?

    About Juliana Werner:
    Graduated in Physical Education with a Master in Sciences of Human Movement, Juliana is a contemporary dancer who has been researching about theoretical and practical aspects of social dances since 2010. In her current work she approaches partner dance as a dialog, seeking to develop self-awareness by practicing the listening to one's partner's body. She also brings the attention to questions related to gender determination in the roles of leader/follower and proposes partner dance as a way to discuss gender equality.
