In 2002 Heitor started to dance forró in Brasilia and after 5 years of training, in 2007, started monitoring the Forro Ispilicute – Brasilia and also to give private lessons.
In 2010 Heitor started studying other rhythms in order to improve his Forro, thus improving the technique, balance, musicality, corporal expression, motor coordenation and more… Then he tought Forró Pé de Serra on the dance Academy “Vem Dançar“ and the “Caribeño” Brasilia.
Moreover Heitor has a project called “Forro pelo Mundo” where he travels around spreading the Forro culture.
Now he is well-known forro teacher in Europe.
Don't miss the opportunity to learn from such an inspired teacher and dance with an incredibly musicalaty and charming partner!
