Rio Samba Experience: Dance Class and Night Out at the Rio Scenarium Samba Club
From US$75.00
Overview
Dance like a local during this 4-hour experience in Rio de Janeiro. Learn basic samba and forró steps at the dance studio, then transfer to the famous Rio Scenarium, where you'll enjoy express entry, to show off your new moves on the dance floor.
What to Expect
Make your way to the dance studio, located near Ipanema, for your dance lesson at 9pm. 
With your instructor in the lead, spend the next hour learning the basic steps of samba and forró in a fun, low-pressure environment. You can come to the lesson on your own, with a partner, or with a group of friends. After an hour of brushing up on your new skills, hop into a private vehicle for transfer to the famous Rio Scenarium.
Arrive around 10:30pm and breeze pass the crowds with fast pass entry, which means no waiting in line. Hit the dance floor to the sounds of a live band and show off your moves. Spend the next 3 hours at the club in the company of your guide and class, then your guide will show you where to get a taxi back to your accommodations.
