Garden City Samba


Garden City Samba is a community percussion and dance group specialising in Brazilian carnival rhythms. We welcome new dancers – no previous experience needed!

We train and rehearse on a Tuesday evening usually at St Francis College, Letchworth, but occasionally elsewhere - so first timers please email us to check where we're going to be before coming! (Please do not contact St Francis as they just hire us the space and do not know details of sessions, etc)

We're available for performances, events (community or corporate), parades and educational workshops.

We're led by leading exponent of Brazilian contemporary dance, Marcia Magliari and acclaimed percussionist and award-winning tutor, Ravin Jayasuriya.

For info on our drumming sessions please look under the music listings (times and rates differ for drummers).

See our website, Facebook or Twitter for more details, or email us at

Times and prices are subject to change. Contact venue before setting out.
