Not as advertised; drunk patrons; non-responsive management
Jan 2020
No samba lessons as advertised. Many drunk patrons yelling, distracting during songs and dances; I complained to the management who did nothing about it. I asked for a refund and was denied. We've been to shows all over the world. This was by far the worst. While there were some impressive and talented performers, the atmosphere and attitude of the employees ruined the experience. For over $100 USD/ticket, we expected at least a place where we wouldn't have to leave early for fear of the rowdy drunks and beligerant patrons. Stay away. Stay away, indeed!

Fast paced, colorful show
Nov 2019
We saw this show 4 years ago, when it was still in club on a dance floor. They are now in a theater which was nice. The show flies through the history of different regions and time periods in Brazil. My husband is Brazilian and was able to elaborate on some details. I suppose it would be nice for other visitors to know what they were seeing though - like a little introduction before each number. But, maybe that would disrupt the pace of the show.

But it was a lot of fun with lots of energy!

Interesting, lively show
Nov 2019
Our group arrived a little late so we missed the beginning and any introduction if there was one. The theater is small so everyone is pretty close to the stage. Some of the dancers come down into the aisles at times. The dancers are energetic and seemed to be enjoying their performances. There were many costume changes, all of which were pretty elaborate.

I see this as the type of touristy thing that you have to do once while traveling and this show was better than many other activities aimed at tourists.

Good dancers. Colourful but confusing show
Nov 2019
We went to the show as part of a dinner and show package. The theatre is quite small and comfortable enough. The show was certainly very lively and varied, with colourful costumes, and entertaining dancers and exciting acrobatic moves. The band was good too. However, I found the whole thing very confusing as there was no commentary to tell us what was actually going on - no description of the narrative when a story was being told, and no announcement of which dances were actually being performed. It was all a bit noisy and ‘wham bam’. In many ways, I wished we had skipped the show and just gone to a bar which had dancing

Brilliant Samba & Cultural Show
Sep 2019
Must go here if you are touring Rio. The Samba dancers were amazing but it was far far more than Samba. The dancers were incredibly acrobatic, the music was enchanting, and there was much to appreciate. The time went by very fast.

Great show
An excellent show. I believe it shows a snapshot of the history of Brazil through dances. It would be nice if there is a short description of every dance projected on the side of the stage during each performance. This way the audience will appreciate the performance even more.
Still, it is a great show.

Fun evening!
Sep 2019
We landed in Rio and only had 4D/3N to see this city (not enough time!)...we landed at 6pm and promptly made our way to our hotel.

We booked on TripAdvisor and received the QR ticket which we had to exchange for paper tickets at the box office. The show started circa 9:30 pm and was an interactive experience from the beginning. The openers get the crowd up and active which is a nice ice-breaker. The show continues with the dancers doing what they do best...some of the parts involve breakout and jumping into the audience which is good fun! All of the dancers are amazing, phenomenally conditioned bodies - capoeira was amazing!

The finale is a good opportunity to jump on stage if you are keen! Worth it for the fun-filled evening!
