Supporting the Arts

Aug 2020 | posted by Tourism Portfolio
What is 'The Arts'? By definition it is the expression or application of human creative skill and imagination, appreciated primarily for beauty or emotional power - a painting, music, literature, or dance.
Like our own industry, arts and entertainment are also suffering due to COVID-19 restrictions. When we can once again travel and plan incentives beyond our borders, we've got some ideas on how you can incorporate 'The Arts' into an incentive program.

Samba Sensations in Rio

Samba is a musical and dance genre, the most famous in Brazil, originating in the city of Rio de Janeiro. For 90 minutes guests will be invited for a samba workshop with a couple of teachers with extensive experience on stage. The class consists of samba history (theory), samba class and practice with teachers and music.  Also possible to add live drumming and music practice for a Samba trio.
