35 Years and Going Strong!

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.

Samba De Enredo Competition

We are pleased to announce that this year London School of Samba’s 2018 Samba de Enredo Competition will take place at Floripa on Wednesday 18th April from 19.30.

This competition is one of a kind in the UK, as we invite talented musicians to compose sambas, and the winning one, chosen on the night by a panel of judges together with LSS members, will be sung and played by the School at Notting Hill Carnival and throughout the whole year!

We are only one of a few European Samba Schools to hold a competition of this nature and we’re proud to see a high number of entries for this year.

All songs are going to be performed on the night accompanied by a live bateria, giving you a proper taste of this year’s carnival! And our theme for this carnival is “For the beauties of the sea: Yemanja guide us.”

After the competition, the vibrant surroundings of Floripa will be filled with Carnival celebrations, and live performances from our own bateria and dancers!
