Have you ever wondered what carnival is about?? Our long time member Chris has made a great video that sums up the whole experience of the Rio Carnival. Chris is former tour guide in brazil and does the commentary for Red Bull TV’s coverage of the carnival.
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.
