English: Samba school (in Portuguese: Escola de samba) is a popular club or dancing school in huge square-compounds —quadras de samba—devoted to practicing and exhibiting samba, an African-Brazilian dance. The schools are traditionally associated with a particular neighborhood, often shanty towns, or a town. Throughout the year the samba-schools have various happenings and events, and most importantly rehearsals for the main event which is the yearly samba-parade ("desfile das escolas de samba").
