    What to Expect
    Make your way to the dance studio, located near Ipanema, for your dance lesson at 9pm. 

    With your instructor in the lead, spend the next hour learning the basic steps of samba and forró in a fun, low-pressure environment. You can come to the lesson on your own, with a partner, or with a group of friends. After an hour of brushing up on your new skills, hop into a private vehicle for transfer to the famous Rio Scenarium.

    Arrive around 10:30pm and breeze pass the crowds with fast pass entry, which means no waiting in line. Hit the dance floor to the sounds of a live band and show off your moves. Spend the next 3 hours at the club in the company of your guide and class, then your guide will show you where to get a taxi back to your accommodations.

    Our samba class with Patrick was easy to follow and good fun. We had a really good time at Rio Scenarium despite it being a Thursday night. There was a great atmosphere. Patrick stayed with us and helped us get taxis home.

    Helio was our instructor. He did a fantastic job with the class. It was a lot of fun! After the class, he took us to the samba club, very nice and beautiful. I enjoyed every moment of the night! Highly recommended!

    We had such a great experience. Our dance instructor was very good and explained the steps so we came away with the basics. Rio Scenarium was perfect and we danced for hours. Beware the caipirinhas-super strong!!!
