Sabrina Sato Carnival Career
Who said Sabrinas can´t dance? Model, show host, and comedian, Sabrina Sato from São Paulo is another constant presence at the Brazilian Carnival. Since she was a kid, Sabrina would love to watch samba parades and would join carnival balls with her parents. Later, Sabrina would be a professional dancer and her transition to Samba was a question of time. Sabrina Sato, known in Brazil for her multi-cultural background, has always been a supporter of the “Gavioes da Fiel Samba School” in São Paulo, where she paraded as Carnival Muse in 2008 and 2009. Let´s learn a little bit more about the Carnaval profile of this true artist.
Carnival Queen Sabrina Sato gained the confidence and trust of Gavioes da Fiel Samba School since the days she started to attend their samba rehearsals. Then, the sensual Brazilian model participated in in numerous rehearsals and samba-school activities to help promote the loved school. Sabrina parades for Gavioes da Fiel since 2005 and for the 2010 carnival, reveled in São Paulo as Drums Section Godmother, a true honor.
In one of her first parades, Sabrina showed why she was destined for success. On the middle of her 2008 parade, the top portion of her golden bikini costume ripped off. The Carnival Queen had to dance all the way holding her bra or it would fall. Many would imagine she would lose her grace or majesty right there…By the contrary, she gained even more fame and attention for being able to shine, smile and dance .
Sabrina Sato also has a special passion for Rio de Janeiro´s Carnival too, where she ´s always seen. The half Japanese, half Brazilian beauty says she loves the wonder city, its beaches and has paraded in 2008, 2009 and 2010 as a muse for the traditional Salgueiro Samba-School.
This is indeed a great distinction for the dancer since Salgueiro Samba School is known for its high-flying goddesses like Viviane Araujo. In 2010, Sabrina was invited to join a third samba-school: Academicos do Rocinha from Rio de Janeiro, by its President. Many say she will be the 2011 Carnaval Drum Queens for Rocinha...Let´s wait and see!
