Samba Fogo is a cultural arts organization providing year-round programming locally and nationally. Samba Fogo brings Afro-Brazilian dance and music to life on the stage and in the classroom through programming that includes dance and music classes, a youth summer arts camp, and the production of high-quality cultural arts performances for various events and venues in Utah and the Western United States.
“Unlike other dance performances, Samba Fogo is not just a spectator sport. The audience was urged to clap along, shout when it suited, and even get up and dance at times. Needless to say, the energy was contagious.” –Salt Lake Magazine
“Samba Fogo brings fire, passion and pure joy to their performance.” –City Weekly
“These athletes, animated and impassioned, could arouse wonder in any audience member.” –Salt Lake Underground Magazine
