Steps - Samba de Gafieira by Marco Antonio Perna
Steps - Samba de Gafieira
A set of the main steps organized for teaching and competing was chosen in a polling in Rio de Janeiro in July 2001.
Such steps were divided into Bronze, Silver and Gold and were called Syllabus. Such steps and their variations
will be described later. Some examples of variations are chicote and pescaria, which are ways to get into the
facão (Big Knife) and even the faquinha (Little Knife). The same goes for letra,
boneca (Doll) and Pulada de Cerca.
In the syllabus, there are not acrobatic steps where the dancer takes his feet off the ground.
For that reason, neither cadeirinha (little chair) nor baratinha
nor balão (baloon) are included. Cabide, besides taking the
feet off the ground, it is a typical rock step, mischaracterizing Brazilian dance to international view.
The following people participated of the meeting for the syllabus voting:
Carlinhos de Jesus (C.D.C.J.),
Marco Antonio Perna, Rogério Mendonça (C.D. Jaime Arôxa), Dani Escudero (C.D.J.A), Marquinhos Copacabana,
Bob Cunha e Aurya, Dani Galper (C.D.C.J.), Dani Aguiar, Kilve (C.D.C.J.), Flávio Miguel, Bolacha,
Luís Florião/Adriana, Gérson Reis, Egídio, Bruno Barros, Wanir Almeida, Valdeci e Marcello Moragas.
The meetings were Dani Areco and Fábio Bonini's idea and they will introduce samba de gafieira in the
United States of America.
In the CD-ROM the videos are in MPEG, but here are in WMV format, and need the latest microsoft media player or RAM
and need Real Audio.
