Overview

Overview A Night in Brazil - Tap & Song at the Botequim

A night of tap dance and music with Brazilian/Baltimore tap phenom Leo Sandoval, singer Rose Moraes, and exceptional musicians exploring the unique and essential rhythms of Brazilian. Celebrate Brazil with us this Spring! For this show, we are creating a Brazilian boteqium, a small watering hole where drinks are poured, thoughts are shared, food is eaten, and music and dance flow as freely as the beverages. Enjoy caipirinha drinks specials and some of the most dazzling live tap footwork you'll ever see!

With musicians:

Rose Moraes (vocals)
Ramón Gonzalez (guitar)
Neto Vieira (percussion)

About Leonardo Sandoval:
Brazilian tap dancer Leonardo Sandoval is quickly gaining a reputation in the tap world for his musicality and for adding his own Brazilian flavor to tap dancing. He began his dance studies at age 6 in Piracicaba (São Paulo State). When he was 11 years old, he began appearing on Brazilian TV, and at 18, he was invited to Los Angeles to attend the Debbie Allen Dance Academy for the Summer Intensive program, as well as the L.A. Tap Festival. Leo also co-founded the Cia Carioca de Sapateado in Rio de Janeiro with the aim of bringing tap dance to a wider audience in Brazil by incorporating Brazilian rhythms, music, and dance styles into tap.

In 2013, Leo moved to New York, where he is now working with Michelle Dorrance’s acclaimed company, Dorrance Dance, in addition to solo projects as a dancer and choreographer. Recent credits include performances at Jacob’s Pillow, the Fall for Dance festival, the Lincoln Center, the Richmond and Lowell Folk festivals, the Chicago Human Rhythm Project’s Rhythm World. Since September 2014, Leo has been an artist in residence at the American Tap Dance Foundation. As a choreographer, Leo premiered Music from the Sole, an hour-long show created with American bassist and composer Greg Richardson, last year at the Creative Alliance. Leo’s choreography and performing style are rooted both in America’s great tap dance heritage, and in Brazil’s rich rhythmic and musical traditions, with additional influences from contemporary dance.
