My name is Thali Bento, I’m from São Paulo, Brazil, and I’ve been dancing since I was 2.
As a child I danced ballet and took part in a number of dance presentations.
By the age of 18, I was a dance instructor at the Gloria Ibarra Gym in São Paulo.
I taught typical Brazilian dances such as samba, forró and samba-rock.
At this point I already had a big passion for samba
and would attend a large number of Samba Schools (Escolas de Samba),
all of which were involved in São Paulo’s Carnival.
I would dance samba and practice choreographies.
Brazilian Carnival is known worldwide for its grandiosity and for spreading happiness.
In order to keep its reputation, preparations for the Carnival take place throughout the year,
in weekly rehearsals called “parties”.
These rehearsals are made up of 4 crucial elements in Afro-Brazilian culture:
community, drumming, singing and, of course, dancing.
I have taken part in samba presentations for many years at the
Vai Vai Samba School (15 times winner of the São Paulo Carnival).
In England, I have performed in samba shows at places like Bem Brazil (Leeds) and Alma de Cuba (Liverpool)
