Willows High School

Samba Galêz Dance fuses Afro-Brazilian dance styles with funky street-carnival dance, emphasising the music of the band – traditional, contemporary, unique and downright exciting! The dancers rehearse and perform with the band, all of whom are non-professional lovers of rhythm and dance, learning and sharing in what is one of the most exciting and accessible art forms around.

If this sounds like your cup of tea, then come and join us! Samba Galêz are running an introductory dance course, during which you’ll learn a variety of styles of dance, including Samba, Samba Reggae, Afoxe, Maracatu and Dances of the Orishas, all blended with a unique street funk and a West African twist! The course is led by the band’s resident choreographer with over 20 years experience leading community projects throughout the UK.

The course will run on Saturday mornings for 8 weeks and costs £35 per person.

As with all our introductory courses, once completed you will have the option of joining the biggest (and best!) community Samba band in South Wales.

The Things People Say...

Seen Samba Galêz twice at the Brecon Jazz Festival. Awesome, absolutely awesome.

I would like to thank Samba Galez for their performances at Blackwood Summer Festival. The crowd loved them and nothing was too much trouble for them. See you next year!
