Gafieira

Gafieira, or its full name Samba de Gafieira, is a partnered dance style from Brazil. Sometimes referred to as ‘Brazil’s version of the Tango’, it involves a strong upper body lead, relaxed hips and the flair of flicks and kicks as the couple moves around the dance floor.

A lovely example of Samba de Gafieira (please note this video does not belong to Latin Vibrations):
