Bead Squad

To ensure the safety of our community Carnaval San Francisco has postponed the festival and parade this year. We look forward to dancing with you next year!

Do you have questions_

Are you ready for the dance party of a life time?

Dance with BeadSquad in Carnaval San Francisco. Improve your Samba skills, feel great in a glamorous costume and have a blast making new friends. Stop scrolling and start dancing.

Rehearsals are on Thursdays from 7-8:30 pm from March until the grand parade on Sunday, May 24. We’ll be accompanied by live drumming as we dance our selves to good health and happiness. All levels are welcome to join us.

Have more questions? Join us for an info night on Thursday, March 5 at 7:30 pm, 2412 Clement Ave in Alameda. We’ll talk costumes (and no, you don’t have to wear a bikini), parade details and preview some choreography.

Will you be brave this year? Let me know!
