Nottingham hosts Samba Dance football sessions
 Women's Football News 7 Apr 2016
 
Nottingham City of Football are bringing some South American rhythm to Nottinghamshire by giving women the chance to learn Brazilian football to the sound of samba music. 
 
The Monday night sessions, in partnership with the Renewal Trust, will bring the mediums of dance and football together to help Nottinghamshire ladies learn to dance with a ball at their feet.
 
Katie Gibson, Programme and Partner Coordinator at Nottingham City of Football said: "We're delighted to be doing something different and bringing the music and dance of Brazilian life to Nottingham in a way that also incorporates football.
 
"However, this isn't just about football, the samba dance element also means it's a great way to keep fit and learn to dance the traditional Brazilian way.
 
"The sessions are open to all women and we hope ladies will come down and bring along their friends and most importantly, have fun."
 
The sessions in St Ann's every Monday evening are just £1 per person and there will also be a crèche and Socca Tots class running simultaneously for children under 8 years old, so if you're a mum, bring the kids along too!
 
Jonathan Morley, Sports Strategy Director at the Renewal Trust said: "The rhythm of the great Brazilian teams has often been seen as a product of samba music, indigenous to Brazil, which is where many believe they inherit their fantastic football skills.
 
"Many clubs and soccer schools teach ball skills to a background beat of samba.
 
"Jinga is the term used to describe a dancer who moves with great fluidity, flexibility and smoothness and Jinga is evident in all of the great South American players.
 
"The movements and flexibility illustrated by these players has its roots in this type of dance and can be used as a tool to attract more people into football."
 
The Samba Football Fitness sessions will be held at Brendon Lawrence Sports Centre on Hungerhill Road, St Ann's every Monday 5.30pm - 6.30pm.
 
Nottingham was crowned England's City of Football by Sport England and has received £1.6 million of funding from Sport England for the project, which runs until March 2017.
 
Key challenges to be met include raising the levels of participation in football in Nottingham promoting the cultural, social, health and educational benefits of football, supporting diversity among those playing football, and creating new initiatives, which can be replicated across other regions in the country.
