10th Annual Samba Queen Contest
Samba Fogo presents our 10th Annual Samba Queen Contest!
Saturday, January 26th at Metro Music Hall
Doors open at 8:00 p.m. with live Brazilian music.
Dance competition begins at 9:00 p.m.

The Samba Queen Contest is no ordinary event.
Dancers entertain the crowd as they compete for the title of 2019 Rainha Do Samba (Queen Of Samba) adorned in traditional Brazilian Carnival costumes of bright colors, feathers, sparkling bikinis and sky-high heels. Each contestant gets a chance to perform a two-minute solo with a live Brazilian Bateria (drum line), and celebrity judges and audience voting determine the winner!

The event is open to ages 21+. Cash Bar hosted by Metro Music Hall, serving Caipirinhas (yummy Brazilian cocktail).

To honor our tenth annual event, we are welcoming five international samba experts to join us in Salt Lake City, to teach a full weekend of classes, January 25, 26 & 27! Our special guests include:

Ana Laidley from Rio De Janeiro / LA
Danielle Lima from Rio De Janeiro / New York
Angelique Starks from Phoenix, Arizona
Marcelo Gomes from Recife / SLC
Danielle Banci from NYC
Lorin Hansen from SLC

Everyone is welcome to participate in the workshops, regardless of ability level - these classes are for all genders, all levels.
