We had a great class with Rio Samba Dancer! Bia was a fantastic instructor - she was friendly and fun and made sure everyone was comfortable. We weren't sure we were in the right location at first because the address took us to a hotel,...More

and old areas from Rio de Janeiro. This neighbourhood
is a blend of Brazilian soul - crowded, rowdy and
traditional. This neighbourhood has a bit of
everything: bars with music, pubs, street fairs,

I attended the class in late June 2015. They took us to Carioca Da Gema (which is also recommended in Lonely Planet). However, they made it seem like they rotated the places based on the day inside Lapa District.

It is a walking distance but never do that. Take a cab, it does not cost much.
