    Here is a video of what I guess is considered real Brazilian Samba.
    If you follow the video for some time you actually get to see some similar moves to the ones used in the Latin Ballroom Samba. Such as Bachakatas (not sure how to spell that) and other similar body moves.

    Hi Leonid,
    My daughter dances Brazilian samba. I think it's Batucada. (?)

    Added: I think that Batucuda is the windmill type arm movements with hip action. Is
    that correct Leonid? 2:47 in your clip.

    Sorry Leonid, I asked my daughter about it today and she pronounces it "bachakata" as well. She also says that it refers to shoulder motion.
