If you want to learn legit samba - technique, form, and dance steps - then look no further. Carla is the REAL DEAL and is a perfect mix of patient and challenging. She won’t let you off easy and you will burn MANY calories while sweating through the lesson. All worth it when hit the samba party dance floor 💃🏽💃🏽💃🏽

Carla is a wonderful and very professional samba dancer and teacher. We had a fun experience in her class and highly recommend! Just a note that Carla speaks little English, but she knows the basics and we understood almost everything.

I have never danced samba before and I have two left feet but Carla was very patient even though I took a long time to learn the steps. I recommend taking this class with Carla because you can learn the skills before you go to Pedro de sal or lapa 😂. I enjoyed my one-on-one lesson and definitely had a great workout!

Carla's Samba class is awesome! She really knows her stuff, and we were able to learn some solid basics of Samba in just one hour. The studio was very nice & clean! All precautions were taken for COVID. If I were to do it again, I would have booked several classes throughout the time we were in Rio so we would have had time to learn more!

So for my last few days in Rio I thought I would try something out of my comfort zone. I took this class as a person who doesn’t dance at all and was able to pick up the basics really quickly. Expect this to be a workout but I enjoyed it and thought this was a great class!
