Hélio was an amazing teacher and I recommend this class to anyone! He was super patient and made the experience unforgettable. If he can teach me how to Samba, he can teach anyone 😂

I took private lessons at Rio Samba Dancer. Helio is a great teacher. He's funny and friendly. It's easy to relax, and learn in that vibe. He invited me to a feijoada one Saturday afternoon. It was one of the highlights of my trip in Rio. The food was good, the venue was beautiful, and there was several awesome bands playing samba and forro. It was fun to go out and test what I learned. I'll definitely take more lessons, the next time I'm in Rio

This class was fabulous! It can accommodate all different levels of dancing, is super fun, and prepares you for a night out dancing in Lapa. The best part is that that part is included. Do it!

Helio was an awesome instructor and the experience was all around great. I came in knowing no samba and a little bit of another latin dance. He was succinct in his instructions, breaking down each movement into easily digestible pieces, all while making the class loads of fun. I felt like the instruction we were given was good enough to dance at the club (this is something that is really important to me; feeling comfortable enough to break out the moves in public) After the class, we headed to a club in Lapa and danced the night away. Helio stayed with us for the majority of the time and made us feel comfortable. We each grabbed our rides home from there. Very good energy and excitement :) My only gripe was that we needed to play to get into the club. I was expecting the course to cover the entrance to the club but it did not (not a huge deal, ~20R$, but paying was not expected). Highly recommend the class and the instructor. Would take another class if given the chance.

Dear Matt, I'm glad you had a good time with us. Actually the cover charge of the Club is included in the package. Unfortunately, I believe they charged you by mistake. I apologize and I will refund you this R$20 reais. Thank you
