Samba
Samba, a ballroom dance of Brazilian origin, popularized in western Europe and the United States in the early 1940s. Characterized by simple forward and backward steps and tilting, rocking body movements, it is danced to music in 4/4 time with a syncopated rhythm.

In the US, it evolved into a couple’s dance performed in most ballroom and was standardized as a ballroom dance in 1956.  In Brazil, however, Samba remains a solo form, danced at street festivals, and other celebrations with nationalistic pride.

Samba is a fun, upbeat, lively dance that progresses counter-clockwise around the floor.  It is characterized by its syncopated timing, bounce, rolling hip action and pelvic tilt and a great deal of rhythm is expressed throughout the torso. The Samba frame is similar to a bolero frame with more separation between the partners.
