舞蹈帮助巴西贫民窟的孩子远离犯罪

2013-09-16    来源:CCTV    【      美国外教 在线口语培训

近来,一种混杂了桑巴舞,霹雳舞,自由旋转和杂技的小步舞(Passinho),非常受巴西贫民窟孩子们的喜欢。孩子们把时间和注意力都用在学习这种舞蹈上,从中他们感受到正能量和希望,进而大大降低了青少年犯罪的几率。


Dance helps keep kids away from crime in Brazil's slums

The renaissance of a dance is all the rage in Brazil. Fuelled by social media, teenagers living in Rio de Janeiro's shanty towns are embracing the Passinho. This new dance helps keep young people away from crime.

Teenagers glide and pop, shake and dip to the rhythm of music that's heavy on funk hooks laid over snare beats.

Passinho, or "little step", is a mix of Samba-like footwork, breakdance, free spins and acrobatics. The dance has been around for years, but recently became more popular through social media. Dancers posted videos of their moves on YouTube and Facebook, sometimes drawing thousands of followers.

Passinho's new superstars include Hilton Santos da Cruz Jr., who says he started dancing Passinho after seeing it on YouTube. "I became interested and started training, trying to do it like them, and now I’m here, doing Passinho," Cruz said.


Earlier this year, one of Brazil's most popular television variety shows crowned Cruz Passinho champion. Another fan of the dance, Jonathan Batista, says the dance keeps him and other youth away from a dangerous path.

"I think that if Passinho hadn’t reached the communities here, many young people would have got involved with crime," Batista said.

In shanty towns that have undergone police pacification, with officers pushing out gangs and setting up permanent posts, Passinho has sprung up to replace "baile funk" dance parties. The "baile funk" parties were notorious for drug use, occasional violence and incidents of young girls being exploited.
Passinho provides an alternative to drug dealing for many of the youth in the shanty towns.

"In the past, so many kids were involved in trafficking, or not leaving their house. Today, Passinho is changing everything, helping those on a dangerous path," said Andrez Luiz da Cruz, Jonathan Batista's father.
For many of these dancers, Passinho is enabling them to foresee a more positive future for themselves and their families.(CCTV)
