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. You will learn how to focus on rhythm and timing: listening to changes in tempo, keeping on beat, and recognising the main samba drums.
In our classes we will focus on samba moves technique and Body Confidence: how to walk and dance in heels and how to showcase yourself. Besides a good workout, confidence, expression and self worth are guaranteed!
Our Passistas (samba dancers) will also be invited to perform at gigs, parades and even Carnival with our group Leeds Samba Unidos do Ritmo.
