Daniela Braga de Souza

Daniela Braga de Souza is a dancer, Contact Improvisation teacher, and producer. She has been practicing different dance forms and somatic approaches since her childhood. She grew up surrounded by Brazilian traditional rhythms and immersed in a very particular local culture of the 80-90’s. She spent an incredible amount of time going to dance parties and music shows - completely addicted to improvisation! The last few years of her undergraduate studies, she began studying Contact Improvisation in conjunction with yoga and meditation. Being so in love with anthropology, her passion for the “otherness” was completely transferred to the irresistible world of Contact Improvisation. In 2007, she created the project “Movimento Descalço” in Brasília to collaborate in the development of the local CI community.
