Last ensaio at Mangueira

Last ensaio at Mangueira for our student from Japan
Saaya at her last ensaio at Mangueira

A une semaine du Carnaval, la fiΓ¨vre s’est emparΓ©e de Rio et les Γ©coles de Samba ne dΓ©semplissent pas. Samedi soir nous sommes allΓ© Γ  Mangueira, une Γ©cole de Samba au coeur de la ville, pour danser avec les Β¨PassistasΒ¨ et Γ©couter la Β¨BateriaΒ¨ jouer toute la nuit. L’occasion de profiter de la convivialitΓ© et de l’exubΓ©rance des Cariocas, encore une fois Γ  la hauteur de leur rΓ©putation.

Last ensaio at Mangueira for our Japanese student Saaya. Carnival is arriving soon and our student Saaya is almost at sambΓ³dromo dancing for Mangueira. She would dance as passista for Mangueira next carnival. We went to enjoy the last ensaio at Mangueira for her before carnival Β as we discovered with our other students how a samba school is.

We had samba, caipirinha, smiles, bateria, rainha, fun and lots of Portuguese talking. Our students danced with other passistas of this Escola de Samba that is the oldest one and one of the most important in Rio.

It was the last opportunity to enjoy this wonderful show until next carnival season. We will miss Saaya and Mangueira after carnival.

See a video of the night with the wonderful Mangueira passistas!:
