  • I have been working with Mishel since March 2015. I saw Mishel's videos and advertising for the Rio Carnival Tour and thought it would be wonderful to have her host a workshop weekend in Canberra. It was by far, one of the most fun and inspiring weekends of my life. I was able to chat with Mishel about all things Samba and quickly realised her knowledge and passion for Samba and Brazilian culture are astounding. Since that time, and with the backing of Salsabor Dance Studio, I have been working closely with Mishel to enliven and grow Samba at Salsabor. Mishel is a wonderful mentor, I could not have wished for anyone better to help me step up to the business and management side of the dance world.
