Learn Brazilian Samba whether just for fun, parading in carnivals or performing in shows


Play the drums just for fun at our classes or parade with us in carnivals and at gigs.


We make all of our costumes. Design and create as part of our team whatever your experience level.


Join us to parade at the Notting Hill Carnival and other celebrations.

London School of Samba offer dance and drumming classes for complete beginners to performer level. We parade every year at the Notting Hill Carnival which is open to all abilities. Our performance group travel the UK and abroad to do shows and are available to hire for private functions>>. 

All our costumes are made by hand and you can learn the techniques used at one of our costume making workshops. You can also hire one of these spectacular outfits for an event. There are also regular Make-Up workshops to learn how to prepare the performers for shows and carnivals. 

We are a friendly charity whose mission is to allow people to experience the feel and emotion of Brazilian arts through samba dancing, samba drumming and carnival preparations. Everyone is welcome at the school and there is a place for everyone.
