Grupo Ribeiro Folkloric Performances featuring Samba, Maculele, Afoxe, Capoeira.
Grupo Ribeiro is a performing arts company that presents workshops, residencies, and shows that feature the music and dance of Brazil. Our professional performers and instructors will educate entertain and inspire you with highly interactive programs and performances. Performances and workshops feature Samba, Orixa dance, Maculele, and Capoeira. We have a program or performance tailored to best suit the needs of your event, organization, or school. Our mission is to foster an active interest in music and dance, as well as to encourage an overall respect for Brazilian culture.
We are a progressive dance company focused on performing and creating music and dance inspired by Afro Brazilian folkloric music. Merging seemingly diverse elements found in Ballet and modern dance with more traditional movements from Afoxe, Capoeira, Orixa Dance, and Samba, we find more commonalities in theory, practice, and movement than diversity. Brazilian dance, music, and culture has always been about synthesis, movement, and energy. In keeping with this, the Quenia Ribeiro Brazilian Dance Company intends to spread its message through music and dance.
