In February 2017, Mishel Finlayson hosted the inaugural World Samba Congress + World Samba Queen Competition in the city of Samba, Rio de Janeiro.

These events were the very first of their kind, bringing together Samba dancers and enthusiasts from all over the globe to learn with Brazil’s Samba superstars and compete for the title of World Samba Queen, Princess and Muse!
