Una notte piena di ritmo e colore brasilano, ballando fino all’alba!!!

Last Saturday we went with our Japanese student at Salgueiro!! We were not just with Tsubasa, we were a group of 8 students from Rio & Learn to enjoy what probably will be our last training of the season at Salgueiro before Carnival. We had students from USA, Canada, Italy, Argentina, Ecuador and Japan.

We arrived to GRES Acadêmicos do Salgueiro and everything was looking full just outside the entrance. The Carnival season is on, Carnival is next and everybody wants to see the last ensaios (trainings) as it is a big show to enjoy.

Once inside, we enjoyed some popular Brazilian music before the samba started. Everything was full, and it was quite difficult to move around, anyway we were excited just waiting the samba to start. When the samba started, the Bateria Furiosa did a great music show performance and we already started dancing. Our students were surprise with the drums sound, it is a great show.

After that, appeared on the main stage the passistas of Salgueiro. Passistas are the best dancers of every samba school, they are usually the amazing girls or boys that you see on the typical carnival images from Rio.

Once the passistas ended, our Japanese student Tsubasa decided that it was enough, that he needed to show how well he can dance, that he has nothing to envy to Brazilians!!! He started dancing around and his dance was ‘show de bola’. Watch the video below!!:

See below some more pictures of how our night was!!
