For this year’s Samba Queen contest, we welcome very special guest, U.S. National Samba Queen, Jônia McClenney! Jônia will be joining us as a performer and guest judge for the 2018 Samba Queen Contest on February 3, 2018, and she will be teaching three Samba workshops the week of the event.
This is a special opportunity to train with a national Samba Queen!

All three classes are mixed-level Brazilian samba dance classes, open to dancers of all experience levels. No partner needed. Come samba!

Jônia was born and raised in Recife, Brazil and she has danced her whole life, from Brazilian folk dances to classical styles like ballet, jazz, contemporary dance and hip hop. She is the creator/founder of Raiz Brazil Dance Company. Jônia has been performing Samba professionally for 16 years and she recently won the title of “Samba Queen USA 2016/17”. She has also been awarded other Samba titles over the years, like “Queen of the Drums” for Sambalá Samba School 2008-2011, “Santa Barbara Brazilian Carnival Queen 2014”, “San Diego Brazil Carnival Queen 2014”, and “Hollywood Carnival Queen 2015.”
