Manchester School of Samba

 

Our next moment comes from Manchester School of Samba who tell us about their moment (and the benefits of samba) below…

“Feeling stressed and out of sorts or simply wanting to try out something new and exciting? Learning the ancient art of samba drumming and/or dancing could be the answer to your problems and introduce you to a whole new world. Manchester School of Samba improves your general feeling of wellbeing and sense of connectedness by Samba drumming and/or dancing with like-minded people in a friendly relaxed atmosphere. Drumming as well as dancing do not only release endorphins, enkephalins and Alpha waves that lift your mood but are also a fun way to exercise and provide a gentle aerobic workout. There is also an opportunity to take part in public performances at a variety of events such as the Manchester Day Parade. We meet at Sacred Trinity Church in Salford on a Wednesday between 7pm and 9.30. You can find out further details at http://www.sambaman.org.uk

I’ve just celebrated my 60th Birthday and music is one of my passions. Manchester School of Samba (MSS) has enriched my life in a variety of ways. There are opportunities to develop new musical skills, to take part in public performances or art projects in preparation for them. There is a social side to MSS. After rehearsals we usually go to the Eagle Inn in Salford or after performances other pubs depending on where we are. We’ve performed in different parts of the country and across the region including Carlisle, York, Leeds, Liverpool and at local carnivals. Some of us have even taken part in Samba festivals abroad. Since I’ve started developing this new hobby I have made many new friends across the age range and I would say it has brought me out of my shell.”
