  • I absolutely loved taking classes with Marizete. She really helped me to break out of my shell and become less shy while dancing. She is able, in a short time, to get students to melt the details of dance into fluid, beautiful, effortless movement.

  • " I love it and I am looking forward to the next class "

- Crystal Breaux on Jul 30, 2012.


  • "Delighted by the sounds of Brazilian music and love of dance, Marizete has perfected a way to bring these two art forms together for her students in an atmosphere of fun and excitement. She instantaneously inspires those in her presence to move as she does, with grace and poise, feeling the rhythm of every beat. 
Marizete imparts her relentless energy with her students in a way that ignites a soulful connection to the music. It is absolutely impossible to watch her dance and not feel the desire to move along with her. Her style captures the beauty and essence of the art exactly as is was intended.
Looking forward to the upcoming Forro class this Sunday, July 29, 2012!"

  •   Great group! Marizete is a great instructor and you can just feed out of her energy. If you are like me, who hates boring workouts but want to get in shape this is the class for you! 

- Julianan on Oct 8, 2008.


  •   What a wonderful event! It was well organized and and extremely informative. Thank you Marizete for the same dedication you give to this Samba Meetup Group that you give to your passion as a Samba Instructor. The knowledge you shared was clearly from a deep understanding of your craft... and the History. This information cannot be found ina book. Your preparation for this class made ALL the difference in understadning the "art" and "History" of Samba. This makes a samba student , a better student and ultimately a better dancer! Thank you for an incredible workshop.
