Welcome to our Samba dance classes in Brisbane! Get ready to experience the vibrant and lively rhythm of Samba and dance your way to new levels of excitement and energy. With its roots in Afro-Brazilian culture, Samba is not just a dance, but a celebration of life and a way to connect with others. Samba is a Brazilian musical genre and dance style, with its origins traced back to the early 20th century in Rio de Janeiro, Brazil. It is characterised by its fast pace and lively, upbeat rhythm, typically accompanied by a variety of percussion instruments. Samba is a joyful and energetic dance, often performed during Brazilian carnivals and celebrations.

We dance to a variety of upbeat Brazilian music, including traditional Samba, Pagode and Axe music. Our music selection is carefully curated to keep you motivated and inspired on the dance floor. If you would like a little sampler of the type of music we listen to here is a link to some of our favourite Spotify playlists!
We recommend wearing comfortable clothing that allows you to move freely, such as activewear or shorts and a t-shirt.
You don’t need to buy dance shoes in order to dance Samba! However, shoes with a low heel/platform and minimal grip are recommended before you decide to invest in good quality dance shoes, as Samba is a fast-paced dance that requires many spins and turns. You don’t want a shoe that will prevent your spins with a grippy sole and potentially cause injuries to your knees and ankles long term.
Whether you’re looking to improve your dance skills, meet new people or just have fun, our classes have something for everyone. We can’t wait to see you on the dance floor!
