What you'll do

We'll have a 60 minutes dance class where you're going to learn the basic moves of samba-no-pé, talk about the difference between samba and Carnaval and also about other Brazilian dances. I usually give tips about places to go to dance and suggest some song you can use to practice by yourself later.

I've been a dance instructor since 2006 and the first dances I started teaching were couple dances like salsa and other brazilian dances like forró and zouk. I created my own method to teach "samba-no-pé", which is the solo version of the dance, world widely famous because of Brazilian Carnaval. The method is focused on showing how one's body is supposed to fell while dancing Samba and then bring the moves from there as a consequence, instead of making people memorize performatic figures and expect to start feeling the music after it. For me the music always comes first.

Bruno was very good at introducing samba to all of us students for just one hour. He pointed out what we did well and what we needed to improve upon, which made our learning process more efficient. Highly recommend this experience if you are looking to learn basic samba!

Bruno is a great teacher of samba. He really taught us a LOT in one hour -- but in a way that anyone can learn. He knows a lot about the music, styles and also paid attention to each student's weak spots. I've taken samba before and this was the best instruction and the most I've learned in one lesson. He also knows where you can dance in Rio any night of the week, and sometimes will be going there himself. Highly recommended!

Great approach and methodology with plenty fun. Bruno gives you the essential basics for you to explore further and to let you already do something at the next Samba party... He’s also very friendly and made himself available to any other recommendations and tips on Rio.

Bruno is a great teacher. He is able to break it down to easy-to-follow steps. Wish we had more time to really dance the dance :)

I'm Brazilian and I have been Samba for a while. Still, Bruno taught me Samba, the moves, the why's and do's and don'ts. Few nights after his class, I went to Scenarium Rio in Lapa and the singer gifted me with a CD calling me out for my samba skills. Thank you, Bruno. I had such a great time!

More tips

Use casual and confortable clothes. Flat shoes are better to use if it's your first time trying samba but you're are free to use any kind of shoes you want. Some time it's easier for women to dance wearing high heels. I don´t recommend sandals, slipers or flipflops that don't hold the heel.
