Welcome to Manchester School of Samba. After you read this, you should hop over there to find out a bit more about us.
- Manchester School of Samba is Anthony Watt trading as “Manchester School of Samba (click here for office contact details)“. Manchester School of Samba (MSS), the first Samba School in the NW of England, formed in March 1995 to foster the appreciation
of Brazilian Carnival culture through rhythm, melody, dance and simple costumes.
MSS have provided an often life enhancing introduction to percussion and dance for hundreds of people as well as an opportunity for some to build on their knowledge and strengths, be inspired and make it part of their life. We currently have 70+
fully fledged members including dancers and drummers, and
for special occasions also like to recruit a brass section and puppeteers. We focus on Brazilian Carnival Art forms, and teach rhythms & dances from different parts of Brazil at all levels from beginners to advanced and are open to all people.

- Every Wednesday we meet at Sacred Trinity Church on the junction of Chapel St and Blackfriars Rd, very close to Manchester City Centre, for a very sociable rehearsal from 7.00 till 9.30p.m.
