PARADING

As it is in Rio Carnaval, your costume purchase/entry fee is your ticket into the parade.

 

 We are an entirely not for profit volunteer run community project which is funded solely by its participants.  Your entry allows us to conduct our 3 x Ensaio events, pay for your costume as well as cover insurances and ongoing costs related to the school to operate and manage the Carnaval parade.

Leading up to our parade we will have a series of rehearsals called ensaios where both the bateria and participants practise together to learn the words of the song and get to know one another.
