This night was by far the highlight of my stay in Rio. The class was really fun and relaxed and was a really sociable way to meet other travellers (as I was travelling on my own). Although I didn't have any dance experience, the teachers Max and Helio explained things really clearly and by the end of the class I think I got the hang of it. The club was amazing (definitely take your camera to take pictures inside). Great fun and would definitely do it again next time in Rio!

Our group had a fantastic night with Helio and the crew. The class is fun and easy to follow and sets you up for a good night at the samba clubs in Lapa. I highly recommend it.

Helio was so funny, we had a riot learning the Samba with him! We were a group of 8, 4 couples and the hour lesson flew by. He also took photos for us and provided all of us with a CD of music to practice to. He is located right in the heart of Copacabana, the perfect location in the middle of it all.

Helio is a perfect teacher for anyone looking to learn the basics of Samba and see a fascinating part of Brazilian culture. Definitely make it to the live music bar afterwards in one of the most unique nightspots in Rio. Will surely be a highlight of your stay in Rio.
