Bringing you the exciting rhythms of Brazilian Carnival!

We meet once a week in Letchworth to work on our repertoire, add new material and rehearse for performances. We are a family friendly organisation with an age range of twelve to eighty-eight!

We are committee-run, offering further opportunities for members to volunteer their skills and take on different roles of responsibility within the group.

Our musical director is the acclaimed percussionist and award winning tutor Ravin ‘Raz’ Jayasuriya, and our dance director is Marcia Magliari, a pioneer of Brazilian dance in the UK.

We hope you enjoy looking through our website and learning about our organisation.

Garden City Samba is looking for 12 dancers to form a new dance group to perform throughout the year!
From September 2024, we’ll be running weekly dance classes in Letchworth from 7 to 8.30 pm on Tuesday evenings (start date is TBC)
