Elsa Rivera (salsa)

Samba is a lively, rhythmical dance that has been done in Brazil since its inception in the late 19th century. Considered one of the most popular Brazilian cultural expressions, samba has become an icon of Brazilian national identity, and it is the dance of celebration and joy at carnival celebrations in Rio. 


Join us at the African American Art & Culture Complex located at 762 Fulton Street, San Francisco, CA 94102 (Muni access & free parking).

No need to register. Just show up! For $10, ($5 if you can't afford) you get a $277 value health screening. 


Please arrive promptly at 1 p.m. for check-in (or 1:15 p.m. if you are not doing the health screening). Bring water, a snack if you need it, and comfortable shoes.

Grace's Message

Welcome Everyone!

Summer is already here, and we are half-way into 2015. Time has flown by. Since it is the middle of the year, it is time to take a good look at how we are doing with our diabetes. I know for myself, the last 6 months have been a bit of a battle. My sugars have been all over the place, and the daily stress does not help, either. So what have I been doing to counteract these two? I have been taking the stairs more at work. For those of you that do not know, I work at a public transit system, so in between helping commuters, I walk/run up or down the stairs. This is not an easy task, but it is effective, and it is getting slightly easier. I'm not as winded as when I started, and that's a good thing! 

Starting June, I have also signed up for three new exercise classes (I must be crazy!). The three classes may seem like a lot to take on during the week, but I have scheduled one of those classes directly after my work hours. This way, I go directly to my class. No way for me to sit and reconsider. 

So this is how my summer will be, working to control my diabetes one step at a time.  

What will you do this summer?

Let's Dance!
