Stage de samba

Check out an interview with the director and responsible for lessons in percussion Cedric…

In 2003, the school began to be idealized by Cédric, who says he was encouraged to create it because of his passion for samba. In addition to being president of the school, Cédric is responsible for the drums. Self-taught, he listens to samba-plot every day and is always tuned to the news of the batteries of the samba schools to put into practice with his rhythm artists. He traveled a few times to Rio, but this was no obstacle for him, who according to his own words says that the battery “is the way of his life”. Formalized in 2004, Unidos de Genève offers courses in dance and percussion, as well as being a great place where Brazilians based in Geneva have the opportunity to miss a part of Brazilian culture, enjoy moments of exchange, learning and establish bonds of friendship.

It was gratifying to see how people engage in percussion rehearsals and still follow a little of the work developed by Flávia Costa and Sylas Le Goff, responsible for the dance session. They keep alive in the soul of the school what I can compare so that you become acquainted with our beloved segment of “Passageway” in a smaller proportion, but where the love for dance reigns. I had the privilege of attending a class where I noticed the creativity in the creation and presentation of choreographies and besides all the care of them in preserving the samba in the foot.
