Along with G.R.E.S. Sambão Para O Povo, we offer drum and dance
a wide variety of styles and ability levels. Sambão is dedicated to promoting cross-culturalism
through Brazilian music and dance. We offer classes to new-comers to introduce them to
Brazilian forms and turn them into Brazil-philes, as well as classes for veteran Brazil-philes that
need an outlet in the South Bay and on the Peninsula. We meet every week on an on-going
basis. Wednesday night we offer our Intermediate/Advanced classes in Mountain View and
Thursday nights we offer our Introductory courses in San Jose. Please visit the links below
for more information about specific classes.
