Global Grooves

“Bring it on!” A multi-cultural cocktail of world-wide percussion and dance as teams take samba drumming to new heights.


Global Grooves takes the concept of rhythm-based teambuilding to a whole new level.

Bringing together the percussion and dance of Brazilian samba, West African Djembe, Indian dhol, Spanish flamenco, Moroccan sand-dance, Cuban salsa and South African gumboot, Global Grooves mixes a powerful multicultural cocktail that will leave your people energised, inspired and united.

Working separately in different teams the participants learn various world percussion rhythms and dance styles as well as the “global groove” – a common signature piece learnt by all the teams. Under expert tuition each team practices and perfects totally different rhythms, moves and chants. When the teams are brought together the combined breath-taking result sounds fantastic as they seamlessly rotate and take to the stage and perform their own unique piece.

Global Grooves is an energetic, rewarding and hugely-entertaining experience that celebrates the multicultural and global nature of business and society today while providing a memorable highlight to any conference or event.
