“A great way to see traditional dance and capoeira”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed April 16, 2013

Get your tickets in advance as this show always sells out. I can see why as the quality is amazing. The theater is small so the performers are quite close (we sat in the 4th row). The energy was amazing and the dancers/performers are very polished. Well worth the money!

“Energetic experience”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 31, 2013

I liked that it is in the heart of the pedestrian district, only cost $20 USD and gave me a glimpse into Afro-Brazilian folk culture.

“Loved it!”
5 of 5 stars Reviewed March 21, 2013

The dance performance was excellent. They don't let you take any photography, but the performance is beautiful and lovely to watch! Totally worth it!

You have to get there at least 20 minutes ahead of time as seating is first come first serve and therefore an excellent spot in the queue is definitely required.
