I loved joining the Rio & Learn group on their trip to the Samba School. Diogo gave us a taste for Brazilian Samba culture and we had so much fun learning some moves and enjoying tasty caipirinhas. We would highly recommend this sort of trip to anyone visiting Rio!

Although the parades at the Sambadrome were postponed to April, our students could have a small taste of carnival at Mangueira with our RioLIVE! We visited and experienced the rehearsal of one the most popular samba schools in Rio, Mangueira. We enjoyed every minute of it and it was even better because most of them never saw Carnival in Rio de Janeiro, therefore, a small taste of carnival was simply stunning!
