Gabriel is an astonishing teacher who creates a very joyful, safe-space for learning, his passion for rhythm is utterly infectious!




We’re all really proud to announce the commencement of our new dance classes from the wonderful Boglárka Bethlendy. Naturally with the current situation we are starting small, and we’re staying masked-up and distanced! Places are very limited right now, so if you want to start learning Samba no pé, join us via Meetup.com and RSVP for a class….

Hello Sambistas & Ritmistas,

We’re taking summer break after an amazing Caliente/Züri Fäscht and will be back in action in the second week of August.

Thursday 8th of August is our next Schnupperkurs/Rehearsal evening.

Please use Meetup.com to keep up with our schedule.

Looking forward to seeing you there.

Big Love
