We are proud and happy to announce our first sub-teacher, school-grown and fam-loved Christine.
Christine has been training Brazilian samba with Vancouver Samba School since the beginning of 2020 (training non-stop, no-excuse, online and offline). She has also been performing for the last 2 seasons (years) in all our shows and dance performances with Yulia. She is professional, fun, dedicated and very passionate about samba and dance in general. Christine is very caring, she offers her support and attention to everyone who joins our team or classes. One more note – she is so beautiful that you would not want to stop looking at her. But, try to stay focused and learn as much as you can, cause she knows the tricks and techniques to make you a good samba dancer in 3 months.
