Little Sambistas- Drumming and Dance classes for Kids!

New Class Format!

We listened to your feedback and have split the classes into two so we can better accommodate a larger age range!

The London School of Samba’s Little Sambistas, will be performing at the London Marathon this year so we advise that as many sessions are attended as possible so that we can teach the repertoire whilst also having lots of fun.
