Helio was an awesome instructor and the experience was all around great. I came in knowing no samba and a little bit of another latin dance. He was succinct in his instructions, breaking down each movement into easily digestible pieces, all while making the class loads of fun.

Dear Matt, I'm glad you had a good time with us. Actually the cover charge of the Club is included in the package. Unfortunately, I believe they charged you by mistake. I apologize and I will refund you this R$20 reais. Thank you

Thank you very much for your review. Sometimes we do have two instructors and they are good fun together. You can learn and have fun at the same time. The club is also good fun with great live music and drinks.

We were a group of five women who joined a couple and a single girl to a dance class with Patrick. The class was great and afterwards we went to Lapa for a night of Samba. Patrick made us feel very safe and he went out of his way to dance with each person and recommend food and
