Brazilian Samba Drumming Workshop
It is almost impossible to imagine Brazil without samba, and the percussion section is the engine that drives that classic 2/4 rhythm. With a Trap samba percussion workshop, your students or colleagues will become part of a samba bateria and learn to play to the batucada beat on intriguing instruments such as the tamborim. Using real rhythms and genuine techniques, participants will start by using their voices before mastering the drums en route to a carnival-style performance.
Samba Drumming Workshop @ Girl Guiding Celebration
Then the whole piece is put together to create a carnival atmosphere. Participants learn to play authentic Brazilian rhythms and instruments with correct technique in the dynamic Carnival style.

Capoeira Dance Workshop
When is a dance not a dance? When it’s a disguised martial art! In the appalling times when slavery was used to force Africans to work the land, the vast expanse of central Brazil was a prime destination. To help escape their captors, slaves developed a martial art that combined power, leverage and speed. Now, Brazilian Capoeira is learned for fitness and fun, and participants in our non-contact workshops will learn the intricate moves from an authentic master of the art.
Salsa Dance Workshop
From samba to salsa, this very popular Cuban dance is a favourite for anyone who likes to improvise rather than be restricted by formal rules. With a Trap Media salsa dance workshop, participants will be encouraged to experiment with the beat as they make their way across the dance floor.
Afro Cuban Percussion Workshop
Our Afro-Cuban percussion workshop will introduce students to a host of intriguing musical instruments including cajones (boxes), campanas (bells), congas, claves, shekeres, the cata and the big bombo. Our experienced facilitators will teach them the techniques to perform a number of arrangements culminating in a lively percussion session.
Carnival Arts Workshops - Mask/Costume/Bead Making Workshops
For a journey into the many creative street arts that make the Rio carnival and other parades such a visual spectacle, book one of our carnival arts workshops. Participants will discover some of the meanings behind the famous masks while coming up with their own designs and then bringing them to life. Costume and bead-making workshops are also on offer.
Carnival Venetian Mask Making Workshop @ THe Astley Cooper School
Samba Dance Workshops
Since the 19th Century, the group of dances known as samba have gradually spread throughout the world, its lively, infectious rhythm evoking the spectacle of the Rio carnival.

They will also learn about the different types of dance from samba no pe, a solo version, to samba de gafieira, a partner dance derived from the maxixe.

Stop! Before Booking Any South American Workshops...
Let me ask you a simple question... with so much choice on the internet how do you know you are getting 100% Authentic Brazilian Samba Workshops at the best price, can all these companies claiming to be providers of workshops be relied on?
At Trap Media we kid you not when we say we can guarantee you that no one else in the UK can offer a wider range of professional workshops at an amazing price than us.
So before booking with someone else consider these questions below and you will realise Trap Media is the company of choice for any creative workshops nationwide. We just don't provide workshops we provide an experience you will never forget.
Do they have CRB Checks, Public Liability and a Child Protection Policy in place to safe guard vulnerable people?
Are the workshops authentic? Meaning is the workshop a traditional based multicultural experience?
Can they provide you with at least 5 testimonials from various organisations?
Can they provide you with workshops in Dance, Drama, Music, Visual, Asian and African Arts to your requirements?
Can they deliver nationwide? If so are you sure they will turn up or cancel on you at short notice?
Do they have any credibility or do you know how long they have been around for?
Do they have a dedicated support team to help you coordinate your event?
Well if they can't answer these questions above with full confidence we strongly recommend not using them quite frankly! We take pride and passion in every workshop we provide and you will not be disappointed.
You really don't want to ruin your event or day by booking with the wrong company. We have seen so many organisations let down by companies claming to provide similar workshops - so choose wisely.

Dear Trap Media, The Drumming Workshop was a great success! The workshop facilitators that ran the workshop were really good and engaging!

Dear Trap Media, Just to let you know overall all 38 workshops provided for the Girl Guide celebrations were excellent! The facilitators were all very pleasant and several commented that they had learned a lot about the Guide movement. I would definitely recommend you to others.

"Dear Trap Media, The Samba Drumming workshop was fantastic, full of energy and fun, facilitated perfectly with passion and expertise. The members of our project really enjoyed the african drumming workshops, and are very keen to do it again. I wouldn't hesitate in running more African drumming workshops like this for events in the future."

S Buck - British Music Experience – the O2, London
Dear Trap Media, I’m not sure if Yve has contacted you since we had the Samba Drumming workshop on 24th October. But the session was excellent, the drummer was interactive, friendly and had the group engaged to the African Drumming Workshops. Many thanks for a fabulous African experience!
N. Bellot - Parent Involvement Coordinator - Family Action Surestart Roehampton & Putney
Dear Trap Media, We had a fantastic day on Sunday and I would like to say how marvelous the Samba Drumming workshops were. None of our young people have experienced Samba Drumming workshops before or anything like it before. We were all so impressed by the couple who came and managed to smile and be constantly enthusiastic all day! Thank you Trap Media and I will sing your praises to all from now on.
