Camila Alves was born in Portugal and has always had a great passion for dance.
At 14 years old, she began practicing Argentine Tango. This she did for 3 years along with 4 years of salsa. She also exposed herself to African dance styles such as Kizomba and Semba.
In 2010, now 17, she felt the need to explore her movement in a new and exciting way, which was when she found forró and fell in love instantly. She began taking classes with Pablo Dias, and became his dance partner 1 year later in 2011, teaching classes at dance festivals all over the world.
In 2014, Camila decided to pursue her own solo career as a forró teacher and has since taught in London for 3 years.
She is now based in Lisbon, teaching regularly at Espaço Baião, developing an interesting side of ladies styling and mixed classes, where she encourages women and men to take their exploration of forró to new heights!
