More About the Acadêmicos do Salgueiro
The Salgueiro samba school is another crowd puller, with lavish costumes, elaborate dances, and well choreographed themes that are the school’s high points every year at the parade. The school is a result of the combination of two samba schools with their first performance in 1954. They may not have won many titles, their last being in 1993, but their creativity has what makes them popular with the public. Salgueiro runs Aprendizes do Salgueiro, a junior samba school that trains children to compete in the junior samba competition the Friday before the Carnival. For years, the school has been a favorite among the middle class.
