Full description

Do you feel nervous or unsure about heading out to dance in a new city? Let a Samba dance instructor get you started off on the right foot in Rio de Janeiro, and take a 1-hour Samba lesson at a professional studio in Ipanema. Your instructor will show you some of the key steps of Brazil's favorite dance during a class to get you warmed up. Then go for a night out in a typical Brazilian nightclub and practice the new moves and steps you learned just hours earlier. A lesson followed by night out is a great way to combine new technical skills, such as basic and intermediate steps, with the real dance club atmosphere. Get to know Rio's famous nightlife and meet some locals as you build confidence in your dancing and have a great night out!

We had a really nice evening with Bruno! First we had a samba class for a about 1 hour, where he showed us major moves and poses of samba, then we went to a samba club with live band playing. We had a table right next to the band. We danced samba there. Everything and the whole evening were perfect!

this dance class was a unique experience during our brazil trip. Our teacher has so much heart and passion that you were immediately convinced of his great way of teaching. The samba club was an incredible experience and one could really explore and learn about the native samba district in Brazil. It was a pleasure!

To enjoy the rhythm of Brazil

An excellent and fun experience to take a class with Helio and know how to move to the rhythm of samba to go dancing later and mingle with the people of this wonderful city.
