Miriam grew up in the French and Danish folk music and folk dance environment where music and dance became a natural part of everyday life. She has a music education from the Academy of Music in Denmark. With her violin and her dance shoes she has travelled the world and danced and played different styles. In 2008, while living in Paris, she discovered Forró and immediately fell in love. Since then she has continued her passionate discovery of Forró and travelling to Brazil and participating in the European Forró festivals. In 2013 she started a Forró group in the danish city Odense and the year after in the kapital Copenhagen where she is now living. She is one of the co-founders of the Forró Copenhague association and on a weekly basis Miriam is teaching forró in Copenhagen and organizing Forró events during the year. Miriams music knowledge adds a great flavour to her classes ”Music is the other half of dancing and we must never forget this”.
