Sambaxé won 2nd place in last year's Parade and has been a contingent in the parade for 15 years. In this workshop led by Sambaxé Artistic Director, Raffaella Falchi Macias you will learn original choreography and how to be a street performer. You will also have fun, make new friends, and most importantly, learn how to dance SAMBA.

No experience necessary. All levels, ages, and genders are welcome.
