Fábio Reis

Class Schedules and Concept

Fábio Reis is a Forró researcher and teacher. He insists that the music should be the center of our dance. He developed his didactic way of teaching, focusing on feeling, interaction, the freedom to express yourself and the dance individually. For Fábio dancing Forró goes far beyond than running steps and spins.

His classes allow anybody with any level of experience to develop their own Forró. He shows us the possibilities inside the music. And it seems the Forró journey will never ends. Being in Fabio’s classes is fun, a self-knowledge moment and a unique experience of forró. His classes in 2024 are starting on 9th January.

About Fábio

Fabio Reis – Tänzer, Lehrer, Choreograph, DJ und Veranstalter von Tanzveranstaltungen, hat sich in erster Linie dem Forró verschrieben, eine Tanzart, mit der er seit über 20+ Jahren arbeitet.

Fábio hat seine Ursprünge in São Paulo/Brasilien und ist ein begnadeter Tänzer, Lehrer und Choreograf verschiedener Paartänze. Er gewann unter anderem zweimal die brasilianische Forró-Meisterschaft sowie verschiedenste Preise bei nationalen und internationalen Tanzfestivals.

Er ist künstlerischer Leiter des Festivals Encontro de Forró im brasilianischen Porto Alegre. Er reist mit Forró um die Welt, trat in vielen TV-Shows und Tanzkongressen in ganz Brasilien auf. In 2015 und 2016 erhielt er die Auszeichnung des besten Forró Lehrers in Brasilien (Troféu Baila Mundo). Seine intensive Auseinandersetzung führte dazu, dass er einen multikulturellen, toleranten Forró-Stil entwickelte, weil Forró seiner Meinung nach einer der vielfältigsten Tänze ist, was den Stil angeht, zur selben Musik zu tanzen.

Derzeit lebt Fábio in Karlsruhe, arbeitet mit Forró in Karlsruhe, Dança Bonito (Stuttgart), Forró do Bossa (Leonberg) und unterrichtet Forró auf der ganzen Welt.
