Come join us for Notting Hill Carnival 2018!

We are looking for enthusiastic people, keen to have fun and dance with us for our parade at Notting Hill Carnival 2018.

Our theme this year is "For the Beauties of the Sea, Para as Belezas do Mar" which is about Yemanja, looking to help protect the oceans and indeed our planet. Whether you want to be a jellyfish, Nemo the clownfish, or the sea itself, we have loads of options. Contact to register!

You can find out more about our alas (or sections) here as well as on our website:

Comissão de Frente – Yemanja and the Shadow Figures 
Six spaces available as Shadow Figures. The section will include several forms of dance including Afro-Brazilian, physical theatre dance and street theatre. Some samba no pé. Flat shoes preferred but if you are comfortable leaping about in heels, go for it!

Ala das Baianas – The Sea and the offerings to Yemanja
The Baianas embody the sea itself, in its vast, open blue.

Ala Dance – Jellyfish
Move as the Jellyfish do, through the currents, wearing colours of the sea; this ala includes an umbrella, which will make for some fun choreography! This is a unisex ala with costume options for both male and female with flat shoes or heels.

Ala Nemo
This unisex ala is open to all levels and ages. We encourage families to join this section as the costume is bright, fun and suitable for kids as well as their parents/ guardians. Design is up you! Wear it how you like!
