Irina & Dima



Dmitriy Galkin and Irina Bogatyreva are one of the youngest samba de gafieira teachers in Russia. However, they both are not new to latin American dance. Dima and Ira have been dancing for more than 10 years and their dancing story is closely connected to another Brazilian dance – forro. Both of them fell in love with samba de gafieira almost “from the first view” of the YouTube video and immediately started to learn the dance in Saint – Petersburg and at different congresses in Europe. Ira even spent 3 months in Rio practicing samba and learning funkeado. We are sure she will share some secrets that she brought directly from samba birthplace!
