With over 30 years experience, London School of Samba is the UK’s original samba school. We offer classes to people of all ages and part of what we do is facilitate classes for children of all ages. From Early Years classes at the Tate, Primary School children performing with us for Waterloo Carnival, to a combined group of Primary Schoolers offering a samba percussion accompaniment to the BBC Orchestra.
