Our Philosophy

Brazilian music and dance is fun, energetic and creative. Rich in history, culture and rhythm the Melbourne Samba School aims to pass on this heritage to students of all ages and musical levels. Having fun while learning is a key to our teaching philosophy with adults and children alike all benefiting from their experience with us.

Teaching Method

Our classes are interactive, hands on events adaptable to a variety of settings including classroom groups, private tuition or larger workshop environments.
