Carnival in Rio

Do I need to have dance experience to participate in the Carnival parade?

No, here's how we do it ...

Each Samba school will be presenting many dance sections at the Sambodromo. Some sections are choreographed for professional dancers that really know how to Samba, however,  these schools also offer a commercial section on their school during the carnival parade. This is one of the ways they use to make money. You just need to buy a costume from them, sounds very simple but if you don't speak Portuguese or don't have a connection with dance schools can be hard to find it.

Thinking about this problem, Rio Samba Dancer has made all the connections so you can easily participate in this unique experience.

Is it expensive to dance in the Carnival parade in Rio?

To be honest, the expense is relative to each person but we want to give you an idea as to why the "Dance on the Carnival Parade experience" costs around USD 400. Every costume is made by hand from a professional tailor hired by that samba school, usually, these professionals are from a local community. Carnival brings lots of jobs and opportunities for local people. Selling these costumes to people who want to dance in the carnival parade allows these dance schools to make some extra money. The funds raised from costume sales contribute towards making a beautiful party at the Sambodromo.
