On Saturday, February 28th, Samba New York! will be hosting a not-to-be-missed Carnaval edition of NYC’s only regular samba school event. 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. The evening includes two samba lessons with Brazilian dance master Danielle Lima. After each lesson, Danielle will lead participants in a series of fun, Brazilian dance 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, the Today Show, and 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.
