SESC Vila Mariana is a cultural centre with many musical courses (flute, clarinet, other woodwinds, strings and percussion) and sporting activities. There is a intense artistic schedule, with music, theatre and movies. Some ones are free! The theatres are wide and comfortable; their stages are visible at any place. A restaurant offers meal and drinks at cheap prices.

SESC is one of Brazil's treasures. It offers sport facilities, exhibitions, concerts, theater, films and more for people of all ages and backgrounds. This unit in Vila Mariana is a great place, having a huge theater hall and nice pools.

It has everything a club must have, in a tall building. Amazing shows, places to read, swimming pool... and it´s very accessible to handicaped. It´s some blocks from a subway station surrounded by luch places, and shops.

It is an interesting place where people go for sports (basketball, footbal, swimming, among others) with a nice garden to stay and a theater to watch contemporary plays and music.
