From 6-8.30pm on Sunday 24th February, our 2 hour combined dance and drumming workshop is for all experience levels, whether you’re a beginner or advanced. Quadra nights are hot, loud, fun and are a little taste of Brazil in the heart of London. After the fun we’ll head to a local pub! Exercise, enjoyment, relaxation & socialising, a perfect way to round off 30 days of Carnival!
