"every great dream begins with a dreamer"
UNIDOS DE SYDNEY
The Grêmio Recreativo Escola de Samba or "samba schools" of Rio De Janeiro are
community centres where whole neighbourhoods come together to celebrate the joyous music that is Samba.
Children, through to the elderly sing, dance, play and have fun to the uplifting beat
providing an inclusive space for self expression and social interaction.
Each year, every school works tirelessly to put together a Carnaval Parade. Their dedication, community spirit, teamwork and passion results in the most spectacular showcase in the world which is Rio Carnaval.
Creating a samba school in Sydney has been a long standing dream for the founders, with
ideas and concepts developed 4 years ago.
Australia, with its wonderful multicultural landscape is perfect for creating a traditional Escola De Samba.
It not only provides a space to celebrate diversity but helps bring communities
together to learn new skills, form friendships and foster creativity.
Unidos De Sydney, is a volunteer based, non-profit project,
all are welcome because as they say, the best way to learn something new is just to try.
By creating the school we hope to build a passionate group of individuals from beginners
to professionals through music and dance.
Come along to see how we are going to parade in 2019 and see how you can get involved.
