Enjoyed our evening - easily found the venue for the samba lesson which was fun even though i have two left feet - instructor was very good. Short drive to Lapa to the club where we saw a live samba band on the first floor with lots of guests showing us how to samba very well. second floor of club for eating and third floor more of a dance club. Good evening entertainment with a bit of local club experience

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.

I felt like the instruction we were given was good enough to dance at the club (this is something that is really important to me; feeling comfortable enough to break out the moves in public)

After the class, we headed to a club in Lapa and danced the night away. Helio stayed with us for the majority of the time and made us feel comfortable. We each grabbed our rides home from there. Very good energy and excitement :)

My only gripe was that we needed to play to get into the club. I was expecting the course to cover the entrance to the club but it did not (not a huge deal, ~20R$, but paying was not expected).

Highly recommend the class and the instructor. Would take another class if given the chance.

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

I had a great experience with Rio Samba Dancer. The teachers created a fun environment and made learning the steps very simple. The club we went to afterwards was amazing with live music all night. The teachers went out of their way to make sure everyone was dancing and having it good time. It was a great night - would highly recommend this tour!

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.

I took private lessons at Rio Samba Dancer. Helio is a great teacher. He's funny and friendly. It's easy to relax, and learn in that vibe. He invited me to a feijoada one Saturday afternoon. It was one of the highlights of my trip in Rio. The food was good, the venue was beautiful, and there was several awesome bands playing samba and forro. It was fun to go out and test what I learned. I'll definitely take more lessons, the next time I'm in Rio

Bruno was terrific in both leading the dance class and going to a Samba club after the class. Unfortunately the Rio Scenarium had a private event the night of our class, but Bruno was able to redirect us to another less tourist oriented venue that ended up being terrific. Go local but be with a guide like Bruno to make sure you are well taken care of and see the night life like only the Carioca's know best.

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 drinks to order. Would do this again in a heartbeat.

I can not recommend this enough. Patrick broke down some basic samba moves, in a small group environment. But then moving to Rio Scenarium was perfect.
The chance to watch more experienced dancers, & getting a chance to try it also was so much fun. And even for someone who doesn’t free inclined to dance much. The live music along with this eclectic space is truly worth the visit.

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.

Dear Thank you for messaging us, Sometimes the club is empty but a good atmosphere and sometimes is the opposite. I'm glad you had a great time with our samba experience. Our guide (dancer) always tries to make sure everyone got home safe showing the best way to go home after a great night.

Helio was great in teaching us the absolute basics of Samba. Having him take us out to the local club scene was terrific as well - it was a great crash course on the amazing culture in Rio.
