Company & Ensemble
Samba Colorado’s Dance Ensemble
Members are trained in Brazilian cultural dances, choreography, ensemble work, improvisation, Silvestre Technique and Performance. Styles include, but are not limited to: Samba do Rio (Carnival Style), Malandro (Men Style Samba), African Brazilian Dance, and Orixá Inspired Songs & Movement. Our vision is to provide a platform for dancers and non-dancers to come together to learn, create and express themselves working with an ensemble through performance and community building. You will have the opportunity to represent Samba Colorado and perform in several events, community programs and festivals throughout the year. Travel and work-study opportunities outside of Colorado include Salsa Congresses, California Brazil Camp and Silvestre Tecnica Intensive in Salvador da Bahia, Brazil.
All rehearsals are closed and for active ensemble members. Company rehearsals are every Sunday from 11am-2:30pm. Ensemble rehearsals are every 2nd and 4th Friday from 7pm-9:30pm.
Summer Program Auditions will be held May 12-13, 2020 in Denver & Boulder, Colorado. Season 8 Auditions will take place September 2020. All those interested in joining the Company or Ensemble are required to complete one semester of classes and audition in order to be considered for membership.
