The Bellevue College Brazilian Club invited Bellevue College students to join them at the cafeteria on Monday, April 11 from 11:00 a.m. until 1:00 p.m. for Brazilian music & farró dance. OLS students had a fun time dancing with fellow BC students while enjoying Brazilian snacks and soda.

Forró is the most popular genre of music and dance in Brazil’s Northeast. The music is based on a combination of three instruments (accordionzabumba, and a metal triangle). The dance known as college forró is the most common style having influences of other dances like salsa and samba-rock.

Allison and Hailey commented that the music was very loud and very entertaining. Matthew did his own dance style. Hailey participated in the group farró dance.
