On Saturday, August 30th, Samba New York! will once again be bringing NYC's only regular samba school event to DROM during Brazil weekend in New York. As opposed to a show, the "Samba Party" is more of a communal gathering, where Brazilian music enthusiasts share their love of samba drumming, dance, and culture—a kind of NYC take on the mega samba school rehearsals that precede Carnaval in Rio de Janeiro. Brazilian dance master Danielle Lima provides a lesson before leading the crowd in a series of fun and exciting samba routines, set to the powerful rhythms of Samba New York's live Bateria (Drum Section), under the leadership of Director, Philip Galinsky.

Praised by Brazil's Estado de São Paulo newspaper as "the most famous and active 'school of samba' in New York City," Samba New York! has brought the richness and exhilaration of Rio's samba traditions to some of the most prestigious venues, events, and media platforms in NYC and beyond—including Central Park SummerStage, the WITNESS Gala hosted by Peter Gabriel, ESPN's 2014 Upfront at the Minskoff Theatre, TV Globo's O Jornal Nacional, and the Dr. Oz Show. Having grown up immersed in Rio's samba world, Danielle Lima is one of NYC's foremost Brazilian dancers and founder of the Brasileirando Dance Group.
