Leeds based Unidos em Ritmo was founded in 2016. Known throughout the UK as Leeds Samba, we perform Afro-Brazilian samba dance and drumming at carnival, street festivals, clubs, private & corporate events.

Samba percussion and dance classes in Leeds offer everyone the opportunity to learn. Working together towards carnival, shows and appearances, you can join our active and supportive samba community.

Leeds Samba would like to thank Leeds West Indian Carnival, Brighton Pride, Liverpool Brazilica Festival, The London School of Samba, VAMOS! Leeds, Freedom Mills, Leeds Triathlon, Light Night Leeds, The Wadrobe Leeds, The Hi-Fi Club, Leeds University, Brazilian Carnival @ Belgrave Music Hall, Pontefract Lantern Festival and the organisers of many more wonderful events.

SEPTEMBER 2021: WE ARE BACK! Like most performing groups, Leeds Samba has suffered an almost complete shutdown due to social & economic restrictions. We kindly request that members observe hygiene & distancing at our classes. No masks are required while you play or dance, but please wear one to the venue. Thank you!
