Danielle Andrade and Leo Simoes
Nanny Assis, a native of Bahia-Brazil and named the Top Brazilian Performer in the US by the Brazilian Press, translates rhythms and notes of Sambas, Forro, Axe, Brazilian Jazz, and Afro-Brazilian sounds into pure essence, energizing the audience to dance.
Danielle Andrade is originally from Rio de Janeiro and raised on sounds and movement of samba, pagode, funk, axe, forro, xote, bossa nova, lambada, aroxa, and Brazilian folkloric dances.
Leo Simoes, a native of Recife, Brazil, has been dancing nonstop since he fell in love with forró on a trip to the Northeast of Brazil 5 years ago.
