Contemporary Afro-Brazilian Dance: Abieie'-AfroSambas
Irineu Nogueira is far from being an ordinary dance instructor. His methodology is unique, not relying on conventional choreography and rhythm steps. It is completely different from the everyday and customary "1,2,3,4..." ways of conveying the art of dancing. Dance classes are filled with sheer happiness, creativity, hearty music and plasticity.
"Irineu Nogueira is the most perfect translation of contemporary Afro-Brazilian dance. He teaches with his heart, and dances with his soul. He hypnotizes with his ancestral movements." Cybelle Young (dance student)
