Jeg bevæger sjældent min krop i takt med musik, hvis jeg ellers kan undgå det, men tænkte alligevel at jeg skulle prøve kræfter med en times samba undervisning. Pga. en misforståelse omkring studiets placering kunne jeg ikke nå det til tiden, men Clara tilbød mig at komme på et andet tidspunkt, og hun var meget fleksibel - 1.000 tak for det. Jeg var ellers lige ved at droppe det, fordi jeg nok havde fået lidt kolde fødder. Hvor er jeg glad for at jeg mødte op. Det er længe siden jeg har grint og svedt så meget, og Clara formår på en meget pædagogisk måde, og uden at vi taler samme samme sprog, at få bare lidt rytme ud gennem min stive krop. Ikke bare en klar anbefaling - et must hvis du er i Rio.
