Ongoing Classes and Rehearsals:

G.R.E.S. Samba Mundial offers drum and dance classes covering a wide variety of styles and ability levels.  We are dedicated to promoting cross-culturalism through Brazilian music and dance.  We offer classes to newcomers to introduce them to Brazilian forms and turn them into Brazilophiles, as well as classes for veteran Brazilophiles who need an outlet in the South Bay and on the Peninsula.  We meet every week on an ongoing basis.

Wednesday nights we offer Intermediate/Advanced classes in Mountain View.  Please visit the links below for more information about specific classes.

Note:  Times and locations provided below are "normal" but subject to occasional changes due to circumstances beyond our control.  For up-to-date information on class times and locations, please check the Bateria Schedule Page.

Note:  Your first visit to our Wednesday night classes is free, but you will be asked to give us your name and email address (or phone number).  Since our agreement for use of the space at the Recreation Center precludes us from offering services on a drop-in basis, we ask that you buy a student membership if you decide to attend classes after your first visit.  On any given night, one of us will be acting as Registrar and can fill you in on the details of membership levels and costs.
