SAMBINHAS
AUDITION

The Community Performance Team of Escola de Samba Adelaide

We are thrilled to launch the brand new community performance team of Escola de Samba Adelaide. The Adelaide Sambinhas is a not-for-profit team, dedicated to the integrity of Samba culture and the community spirit of the Escolas de Sambas in Brazil.

 

The team gives students an invaluable opportunity to grow as dancers and perform at community events and other relevant not-for-profit functions.

The team will receive dedicated monthly training with Jane. There will also be opportunities to connect and collaborate with The Sambinhas teams in Sydney and Canberra. The commitment to training, a positive attitude, and team spirit are essential to being a part of the Adelaide Sambinhas.
