Regaetton class, from Venezuela to Fala Brasil School
In partnership with Abraço Cultural, Fala Brasil School received a latin dance class
Written by Isabella Herdy
On Saturday, the 28th, we received a class of Regaetton in partnership with Abraço Cultural. Abraço is a non-governmental organization that promotes the exchange of experiences through the training of refugees in Brazil. With their own methodology and teaching materials, they train refugees to teach English, French, Spanish and Arabic, as well as promote cultural exchanges between teachers, students and guests of all nationalities!
During the month of July we were invited to host the Latin dance class at Fala Brasil House, and of course we could not have been happier with this invitation!
The lesson was given by the incredible Venezuelan dance teacher, Jeison (@jeilnz) who for almost an hour made all the guests have fun and sweat. In addition we had Venezuelan guests selling Patacones, mojitos and cuba libre, that made the conversation between the guests render until late.
We, at Fala Brasil, value the cultural exchange inside and outside the classroom. In our classes we always take Brazilian culture to our students, but we also like to hear what they have to bring to us. Giving in our space to show a little of the culture of a country that is going through such difficult times is very important and rewarding. And seeing so many Brazilians having fun and experiencing this culture shows the importance of this incredible work of Abraço Cultural.
We hope to receive many more events like this and always promote this exchange that makes it all worth it!
