This study aimed to investigate the cultural reinscription of Samba in London by identifying attributes of participation in Samba dance classes. Research was carried out at the London School of Samba and focused on who participates in Samba dance classes, where people participate in Samba, when people participate, and why they participate; addressing beliefs and attitudes towards Samba. This investigation was informed thorough research into significant socio-cultural and political events that have influenced this genre of music and dance.
