It a tango derivative, so it is ordinarily danced in closed frame and the time is “quick-quick-slow”. It can be dance to pagode, choro, bossa nova, and samba music. Forro, another original Brazilian partner dance, originated in the Northeast Brazil. It’s relaxed close body stance make it a great party dance and very easy to learn.
