Welcome to the Suffolk School of Samba

We perform music and dance inspired by Brazil, Cuba, Africa and our home town of Ipswich.

We are proud to be the original samba group in the region, getting started in 1994. We’ve taught and performed to thousands of people at hundreds of events.

Following the Aldeburgh Lights Switch on Saturday 27th November 

we would like to take this opportunity to wish you all a very Happy Christmas and a lovely New Year.

We will be returning to rehearsal on Thursday 13 January 2022


Thursday evening rehearsals are now taking place every Thursday at 6.45pm at St Peters Church by the Waterfront in Ipswich, we would love to have some new members so if you 'love that beat' come down and see us.
