About us

Alegria do Samba is a non-profit organization dedicated to promoting Brazilian culture and dance in Sweden. Established in 2006, Alegria do Samba has always been guided by a passion for Brazilian samba.

Since 2008, Alegria do Samba’s instructors have been trained by Carla Campos, a personal trainer and founder of the SAMBA FIT concept. SAMBA FIT combines Brazilian samba with fitness, a concept that Alegria do Samba was the first to introduce in Europe. The focus of the training is to increase body awareness and boost self-esteem while providing an intense and enjoyable workout. All dance classes include exercises for posture, elegance, and femininity.

This training concept has been refined and further developed over the years. Our instructors have trained and been certified by Carlinhos Salgueiro, the choreographer for the samba school Salgueiro in Rio de Janeiro. His unique method, SAMBA DIVA, fosters confidence and expression, while his technical samba teaching is a key methodology in Alegria do Samba’s dance classes. Carlinhos Salgueiro has been a guest at Alegria do Samba on several occasions, and Alegria do Samba’s instructors have trained with Salgueiro’s passistas in Carlinhos’ PROJETO SAMBA NO PÉ.

Alegria do Samba’s instructors are also trained and certified by Evelyn Bastos, the queen of the bateria at the samba school Mangueira in Rio de Janeiro. Her signature method, SAMBA DE MOLA, focuses on using the hips in samba.

Mayara Santos, with her signature method SAMBA FITNESS, has inspired and enriched Alegria do Samba’s instructors’ training and teaching methodology. She has been invited several times to conduct workshops hosted by Alegria do Samba.
