Are you a teacher about to embark on a journey to Brazil with your students?  If this is the case, then the London School of Samba can help you to provide high-quality fun workshops for all levels.

Do you know a young people’s group who’d love to make Carnival-style costumes? Would your colleagues benefit from team-building drumming activities? Do you know any older people who would enjoy gentle Samba dance exercises?

What the London School of Samba can bring to you:

Samba Drumming in London

Have you got a heart beat? Can you count to four? Then our Samba Drumming in London fun classes and workshops are for YOU! Just like Carnival, samba drumming is loud, energetic and hot! Our expert teachers can cater for all levels. Excellent for developing strong rapport and listening skills as well as ability to work as a group. Samba drumming is for everyone.

Samba Dance in London

Whether it’s Samba Rio party style or Orixa dances from North-East Brazil, there is a fun and energetic Samba dance in London classes and workshops for you guys! You will learn the best moves to create a lively carnival atmosphere! Considering all participants’ abilities and experience, we’ll ensure that if anyone thought they couldn’t dance, they’ll soon love to shake, wiggle and stomp it!

Costume Making Workshops with London School of Samba

Get together towards the creation of costumes that will make the dancers shine! Using both alternative materials and friendly techniques we approach the brief allocated to your project and give a tropical twist to it! Expect loads of cutting, sticking, glittering and fun times!

Customer review of London School of Samba Outreach program

You were all wonderfully efficient from beginning to end and the easiest part to organise in our Brazil themed day. Everyone loved Mags – they thought he held a brilliant workshop…  I didn’t want to forget to say thank you and the London School of Samba provided a great service. I’ve been recommending you to other people already.”
