How to book
Leeds Samba’s madrinha de bateria and experienced dancer Thali Bento brings Samba to Yorkshire Dance!
Samba is a Brazilian dance and Carnival main attraction. In our classes you will learn how to focus on rhythm and timing: listening to changes in tempo, keeping on beat, and recognising the main samba drums. Samba no pé, Samba reggae and even Pagode will be brought to our classes. Do you know the difference between them? Come to our class to find out!
The samba moves technique is developed through freestyle and routines. We will also focus on Body Confidence: how to walk and dance in heels and how to showcase yourself. Confidence, expression and self worth are guaranteed!
Besides dancing Samba at home or in the club, our Passistas (samba dancers) will also be able to perform at gigs, parades and even Carnival with our group Leeds Samba Unidos do Ritmo.Back to all classes and courses
