    Open Call for Drummers and Dancers

    Formed in 1987, Carnaval de San Anto (CDSA) is URBAN-15’s original, award-winning, multi-generational community drum and dance ensemble. CDSA was the first group to bring the carnaval rhythms of samba, reggae, rumba, maracatu, and similar Afro-Brazilian and Caribbean rhythms to San Antonio. URBAN-15’s Carnaval de San Anto has toured all over Texas and Mexico, performed at three presidential inaugurations, and become a regular at some of San Antonio’s most iconic and memorable events, such as Luminaria, the Fiesta Flambeau Parade, the King William Fair, and Jazz’SAlive. URBAN-15’s Carnaval de San Anto has changed how this city celebrates and helped shape the culture of San Antonio.

     

    Every year, the road to Fiesta begins again! This is the community’s chance to join Carnaval de San Anto—we are seeking both drummers and dancers. URBAN-15 will hold a 4-week class for anyone interested in joining the ensemble, followed by an audition. The purpose of this intensive course is to teach basic foundations of music, build up strength, endurance, and coordination, and to teach participants the choreography and rhythms necessary to perform with the ensemble.

     

    Classes will take place Tuesdays in January beginning January 8 and concluding with auditions on January 29. Drummers are asked to bring their own pair of drumsticks and mallets while most instruments will be provided by URBAN-15.
