Planeta Azul is bringing samba back to Cicero for the 5th summer in a row, and just in time for the Olympic Games in Rio! Students will have the choice of playing an instrument in the bateria (percussion band) or dance as a passista (a samba dancer in the Carnaval parade) for our grand finale performance at the end of our 6-week program. The camp, led by Yaasha Abraham (dance) and Luciano Antonio (music), will not only prepare participants for performance, but they will also learn key Portuguese vocabulary words as well as information about Brazilian culture and history in a fun and dynamic way. The camp starts Tuesday, but the registration deadline is actually June 20, so it's not too late to enroll!
