Brazilian Samba is a fabulous way to improve your fitness and confidence, reduce your stress and anxiety, and get your body moving and grooving to amazing music and movement!

Mishel Finlayson was the very first Australian to perform as a Muse (the highest level for a foreign dancer) at Rio’s spectacular Carnival and has been teaching Samba for 15+ years, so you’ll be in excellent hands!

Mishel you are amazing! We recently paraded in the centre of St Petersburg and thanks to your online Rio Carnival Muse course, I felt totally like a Brazilian Queen!

Absolutely loved the online Samba courses with Mishel! Such a great help for me, a busy dancer, who doesn’t always have the time to physically attend classes but has to develop my skills and improve my dancing regularly.

For anyone living abroad wanting to improve their Samba, these courses are perfect! Mishel’s courses are informative and easy to follow, focusing on grace, elegance, posing, expressive moves and Samba technique. These courses are perfect for anyone wanting to learn or improve their dance skills!
