Full description
Learn the basic steps of samba in one hour from a passionate instructor and experience a piece of the local culture. Gain enough confidence to head out to Rio's samba nights right after the class and mingle with the locals.

Be guided through the moves by an experienced dance teacher, Bruno, who has been leading dance classes since 2006. After mastering samba, he made it his mission to develop a method of teaching that makes samba easier to learn for everyone.

Spend an hour with Bruno and have fun unlocking the mysteries of solo samba, the Samba-No-Pé. 

Then, head together to a samba club in Lapa. Sip on caipirinhas and try out your new samba skills to live music. Feel like a local and sample what life in Rio can be like.
