Full description
Your traditional samba experience begins with pickup from your hotel and heads to Renascença Club in the neighborhood of Andaraí. Founded in 1951, the club was a meeting place for local black families to socialize and have fun in a harmonious environment whilst celebrating their cultural coexistence. Since 2005 the club has hosted Samba do Trabalhador, a weekly social samba event which attracts both locals and tourists alike from across Rio as well as the world.

Spend the evening with your local bilingual guide, and learn about the roots of samba and how it has helped the black movement within the city. Immerse yourself in the friendly and vibrant atmosphere of the club, and have a go at samba dancing with the locals, while you listen to their stories and get to know more about authentic Carioca culture. At the club you can also enjoy traditional Brazilian tidbits and drinks to add a little extra sparkle to the night.
