One of Rio Projekt's greatest strengths is our ensemble's extensive work in Brazil

Rio Projekt’s Brazilian dancers travel to Brazil annually to parade at an elite level in Rio Carnaval and perform and train with the masters of Brazilian dance.  They spend extensive periods of time in Rio de Janeiro, immersing themselves in the culture and working with the top Samba dancers, choreographers and artists.

 

Our Brazilian dancers are official Passistas (professional Samba dancers) for some of Rio’s top Samba schools including Paraiso do Tuiuti, Imperio Serrano, Salgueiro, Sao Clemente, Unidos de Bangu, Alegria Zona Sul, Porta da Pedra and Viradouro.

 Rio Projekt’s artistic director Sashya Jay and Samba artists have been interviewed and featured on Rio’s major television networks and programs

Including Globo TV, Bandeirantes TV and Dancing Brasil (Dancing With The Stars).  

 

Sashya Jay is also one of only a handful of artists and the only Brazilian dance choreographer in Australia who is officially accredited by Brazil’s “King of Samba” Carlinhos Salgueiro, to teach his signature style. She is also a Passista and works closely with Alex Coutinho, the director of Rio’s most coveted Passista ala at Paraiso do Tuiuti.

 

Rio Projekt’s Brazilian drummers and musicians have also performed professionally in Carnaval in Bahia, Rio and Sao Paulo and alongside some of the most famous artists in Brazil.
