Start learning the basics of the samba right away with people from all around the world! After a brief introduction, a dance master will teach you the first steps of samba at Ipanema’s premier dance studio. Then, hop in a van for a short tour and cruise around Copacabana and to the Lapa, a famous nightlife district. A guide will explain in detail the history of Rio and Brazil, and point out all the fascinating sights along the way amidst the glowing lights and bustling crowds. Finally, get off at an exciting local club, and kick off the night by taking a shot of cachaça, Brazil’s famous sugarcane liquor that packs a sweet punch. Finally, test out your newly-acquired dance moves to live music played by a real samba and forró band. Let the rhythms of the zabumba drum flow through your body as you move your feet and sway your arms. A taxi will await you outside the renowned Rio Scenarium club when the festivities wind down, but until then, dance the night away!
Rio Samba Dancer was so much fun! After a great class, we did a little SambaClub. We were able to experience a local club and a “touristy” spot within walking distance of each other. I would recommend this to anyone traveling to Brazil and interested in
getting a real taste of the nightlife/culture.
