Normal Class Times are back.
Drum Class 7:00 pm to 8:00 pm
Dance Class 8:15 pm to 9:15 pm.
Normal Class Times will continue for the remainder of 2013
For the first time in over 12 years, we did NOT get our room
on Wednesday nights for January though March.
We were able to secure the room for a total of five
THURSDAY nights (1/2, 1/9, 1/23,1/30, and 2/27).
At this time, those are the only times we are able to offer classes
in the coming quarter.
We do have our room for the first three Wednesdays in December
(12/4, 12/11, and 12/18).¬† With limited classes being offered
in the new year, we strongly encourage you to come use you
class vouchers in December.
This Wednesday, 11/27, the night before Thanksgiving, there
WILL BE Drum class, but no dance class.

Bom San Francisco Carnaval 2013 Gente!
G.R.E.S. Samba Mundial, Silicon Valley's samba school, is a non-profit organization dedicated to community participation. ¬†Samba Mundial's dancers and musicians perform traditional Brazilian-inspired movements and percussive sounds.
The group welcomes new dancers and musicians of all ages, beginning or advanced. ¬†Samba Mundial offers an enjoyable and encouraging experience for all. ¬†So come join in the fun and excitement! ¬†Shake those hips! ¬†Play that conga! ¬†Move those feet! ¬†And don't forget to join us in the annual San Francisco Carnaval Parade as well as other gala events and performances!
What the heck does "G.R.E.S." mean"?
The initials G.R.E.S. stand for¬†Gr√™mio Recreativo Escola de Samba¬†which is Portugues for Recreational Group Samba School. ¬†The initials are used in front of the names of the the major Samba schools in Rio. ¬†A Samba "school" goes all year round, includes both dancers and drummers, and creates an original production annually for Carnaval (in our case San Francisco's Carnaval). ¬†Every year Samba Mundial creates an new "enredo" or theme song for Carnaval, and since we work all year round with drummers and dancers, we use G.R.E.S. in front of our name.¬†
