Samba Carnival Dance Workshops

Igniting the Rhythm of Brazil in Schools

At VG Dance Workshops, we're passionate about bringing the vibrant energy and infectious rhythms of Carnival Samba to schools across the UK. Our Carnival Samba Dance Workshops offer students an exhilarating cultural experience, celebrating the spirit of Brazil's most iconic festival. Through pulsating beats, colourful costumes, and dynamic movements, we aim to inspire students and foster a deeper appreciation for the joy and vitality of Samba.

Embracing the Spirit of Carnival

Carnival is a beloved tradition in Brazil, known for its dazzling parades, lively music, and exuberant dance. Samba, the heartbeat of Carnival, is a rhythmic dance style characterised by its fast footwork, hip movements, and joyful expressions. At VG Dance Workshops, we channel the excitement and passion of Carnival into our workshops, creating an electrifying atmosphere that transports students to the streets of Rio de Janeiro.

Benefits of Carnival Samba Dance Workshops in Schools

  • Cultural Enrichment: Our workshops provide students with an immersive experience of Brazilian culture, introducing them to the history, music, and dance of Carnival Samba.

  • Physical Activity: Carnival Samba is a high-energy dance style that offers a full-body workout, promoting cardiovascular health, stamina, and coordination.

  • Creative Expression: Through Samba, students have the opportunity to express themselves freely, embracing the rhythm and spirit of the dance while developing their own individual flair.

  • Team Building: Samba is inherently social, encouraging students to work together as a team to master the intricate steps and synchronise their movements with others.





We had the pleasure of Vivian visiting our school to deliver a multicultural week of workshops to our infant's school children, nursery to year two. The children thoroughly enjoyed the workshop, Vivian was extremely professional and very knowledgeable about the events and the styles of dancing. We were so impressed with Vivian, that we then booked another workshop in the same term. Vivian, upon his return, again was outstanding. The children were very lucky to have been taught by Vivian.
