Ana Carla Laidley was born and raised and Rio de Janeiro, Brazil where she grew up in the cradle of Samba: Estação Primeira de Mangueira, where her father is a very well-known respected musician and her mother an excellent and one of the first “passistas” samba dancers.

She has taught in Australia, Japan, Mexico, Canada, Brazil, Hawaii, and all over the USA for over 25 years.

She is the founder of the groups Samba N’Motion and Malandro N’ Motion and has choreographed several numbers that reflect her understanding and passion for the Samba de Malandro and her respect to the varieties of style and movements of this unique form of dance: SAMBA!

Ana is also the co-founder of the International Samba Congress which will host its next congress in Downtown Los Angeles June 21-23, 2019. The International Samba Congress is the biggest celebration of samba outside of Brazil. It’s a unique three-day cultural experience revolving around a strong, exciting, energy-filled rhythm which is called Samba. More info: www.internationalsambacongress.com/
