Australasian Samba Competition

Rio is coming to Brisbane!

Join us for the annual Australasian Samba Competition as we bring together dancers from across the country to compete for the titles of Samba Queen and King.

Witness the magnificent costumes, spectacular dancing and magnetic energy as competitors perform their Samba routines on stage to live drumming. Then shimmy, shake and sparkle your way to the after-party as live Brazilian band ‘Don Raul Samba Soul’ brings the rhythms of Rio Carnival to the dance floor.
