Come along to our regular dance workshops and learn a variety of Brasilian dance steps and techniques, including 'samba no pe' - fast-stepping samba! All ages and abilities are welcome and no experience is necessary, just a passion for dance and samba. Participation in our classes and performances are open to both men and women so come along to a session to try it out, or come every week and join as a member and perform on parade with the School.
Brighton School of Samba offers Afro-Brasilian dance classes led by some of the UK's finest samba dance teachers and performers. Our roster of teachers include:
Rosaria Gracia - Head of Dance
Rosaria has been teaching, choreographing and performing for over 15 years, specializing in Afro-Brasilian dance. Rosaria’s experience in carnival parades, as well as her work in dance development projects, is invaluable when instructing both small and large groups such as ours. Rosaria is also choreographer of Brighton-based Maracatu Cruzeiro do Sul and a Dance Lecturer at Brighton’s City College.
