We went to the one hour show of Bale Folclorico and were not disappointed. It was action packed with great music, dancing and capoeira. The theater is small but that means you are right near the action. The energy and pure love of their art...More
Coming to Salvador seeing black Brazilian culture is a must. This theatre organises a nearly daily show with terrific artists. Need to get there and back by taxi. Buy tickets in advance as it quickly sells out.
I was looking for a place to see regional dances an know more about the culture from bahia.
this was the place.
One hour of a great show with capoeira and candomblé dancings.
Near casa jorge amado at pelourinho.
ATTENTION: the direction of this is...More
No one with an interest in Bahian traditions should miss this. An extremely professional show with needle-sharp timing and imaginative choreography. It was also nice to have live musicians---a comparable Cuban show which I once saw in London had only recorded music, which was a...More
I'm always worried about shows like this, which can be so hokey and touristical but this one is WONDERFUL -- do not miss it! The company is so strong, they dance and gyrate and show powerful movements and emotions, all the while smiling and appearing...More
Exuberant, energetic, polished, pulsing and haunting performances. Large cast, great percussion, visually stimulated costumes and non-stop, never slow down choreography. A very hard working and talented group which has performed all over the world. Saw them and enjoyed them at GPAC in Germantown TN, a...More
This show is a must see if you are staying in Salvador. The show is just over an hour long and is non stop high energy dancing. The dancers are totally into it and obviously love the program. I have seen many folkloric ballets across...More
The Bale Folclorico was part of our tour and we were very happy it was included. The show lasts less than one hour in a very small theater. The seats are just benches and not that comfortable but since the show is short its not...More
We went to this 1 hour show pre-dinner. I'd seen a similar show at the Edinburgh Festival. Vibrant and energetic dances and finished off with martial arts. well worth an hour of your time. it costs 50 reals.
Hi, I will be in Salavador for 2 nights on the 9th & 10th May with my wife & teenage daughter. We are going to Salvador not for the beach. We want to spend time covering the historical town centre, some history, some culture, food & music. Now the advice that we need. 1. Would have preferred to do the Free walking tour on sunday ( we reach Salavador by noon on Saturday) but realised that they do not operate on Saturday & Sunday. Instead of doing an expensive private guided tour, are...More

I can't answer 1 and 2, but yes definitely stay in the old city. There are lots of lovely boutique hotels along Santo Antonio, which are a lot quieter than being right in the centre, but still only 15 minutes away on foot.
