Choreographer Amador López, who has been teaching Latin American dance in Kiev for several years, will go to Rio de Janeiro not as an idle spectator, but as a full participant in the festival. By nationality Amador - Venezuelan, by vocation and profession - a dancer, so he will perform at the carnival in the group representing his homeland (during the carnival in Brazil gather "delegates" from all Latin American countries).
He advises those who are going to go to the carnival in Rio de Janeiro to think hard, how much does he need and care? "The first week of February in Rio is a continuous turmoil, with something happening hourly. It's very exhausting. It would seem that the citizens should be used to it, but they also leave the city for the duration of the holiday, in which it is impossible to work properly or to rest," says Amador. - What's a holiday for foreigners is a mess for them. In short, if you're not a fan of dancing, you might quickly become bored. Amador also advises to look beyond hyped shows like the parade of schools. Don't just hang out at Sambadrome; there are dance parties all over Rio's tourist areas.
Dancer draws attention to another point, which is little known in our Ukraine, and of which, for some reason, are silent travel agencies. It turns out that you can take a samba master class right in Rio de Janeiro. "You'll get a lot of new experiences, even more vivid than just watching a parade of schools, albeit the most famous," Amador is convinced. - It's not about special seminars for professional dancers. On the contrary, it's an introductory class for dilettantes. But these lessons, like nothing else, help to get acquainted with the culture of Brazil, to better feel the spirit of the carnival. Arrange in advance about the curso de tecnicas de negociação, according to Amador, is not difficult. All it takes is the will. Through the Internet you can contact one of the samba schools in Rio de Janeiro. Those who don't take part in the parades make money from tourists by giving them lessons. Or you can contact the organizing committee of the carnival when you arrive in Rio. Such a master class will cost from $ 200 to $ 1000, depending on the fame of the school you choose, and the number of classes.
