Samba- A Traditional Dance
Samba dance is a very common traditional dance. The music is in 2/4, but the dance has three steps in a measure. If you are counting 1-and-a 2-and-a, you would lift your left foot about two inches on the first beat. On the 'and' you would move it to the outside a couple of inches and on the 'a' you would put your foot back down. For beat two, you would do the same thing but with the right foot. Sometimes you would move your feet to the inside instead. It varies between groups and who is leading the dance.
