Lead by Samantha Hudson, the Cultural Roots Carnival Troupe has been dazzling Derby crowds at Carnival for years and is always looking for new performers. The group meets once a week to learn choreographed dances and are a part of the stunning costume designs for the carnival.

The hallmark of the year is the Derby Caribbean Carnival where our performers put on a range of colourful performances. Often the highlight of the procession is seeing the troupe perform and they never disappoint each year.

Classes are always filled with laughter and fun, with all welcome to come and give the expressive carnival dancing a try. Samantha also has her troupe involved in all aspects of the group, from choreography, costume designing, music, so whatever your passion is, we will have a role for you.
