브라질에 온 만큼 삼바를 조금이라도 배워야 겠다는 생각으로 신청했습니다. 사실 춤을 엄청 못춰서 ㅋㅋ 하지만 브라질의 신나는 음악과 선생님이 가르쳐 주시는 스텝에 따라 움직이다 보니 시간 가는 줄 몰랐네요.. 1시간이라는 짧은시간에 5가지 스텝을 배우고 연결동작까지 해봤습니다. 시간이 된다면 좀 더 배워보고 싶네요.. 여행 중에 남는 시간을 활용해서 알차게 보내는 것도 좋은 방법 같습니다. 수업 장면도 녹화해주시고 함께한 선생님과 사진도 찍어주셨는데.. 언제 삼바 축제 수상자들에게 삼바를 배우고 사진도 찍어 보겠습니까? ㅋㅋ 선생님도 잘 설명해 주시고 사실 동작 따라하는 거라서 언어의 문제를 느끼진 못했습니다. 마스크 벗고 카니발에서 함께 축제를 즐길 수 있는 날이 빨리 오면 좋겠네요~~ ^^

I came with 2 other Friends. We didn't expect samba to be so physical !it was a fun and unique experience. Carla's husband sent us pictures and videos of the class, which was really nice. Thank you so much for your time Carla !

Carla is an expert in samba and the way she teaches really gets to actually dance! We didn’t think samba was so complicated but with her we got into the rhythm! Be ready to sweat a lot! And burn tons of calories! Bring gym clothes! The best experience in Rio! Will practice for Next year’s Carnival! Muito Obrigada!

Carla is a brilliant teacher with lots of experience! I decided to complete this class as part of our vacations to Rio without knowing what to expect and with no previous experience in samba dancing!!! When I arrived, it was just me and another lady at that evening class which that was a great bonus for me as I learned some great initial moves of samba! She was very helpful and friendly with me and she made sure that I was doing the moves properly! I definitely recommend this class with Carla to get that feeling of real samba experience! Obrigada Carla 🙏

Carla was incredible. I really got a work out from this experience and she really made it easy to follow along. I felt like she catered the lesson to each of us and I definitely felt it in my calves afterwards. I'm really glad I got to do this!
