Taking part in the parade in a beautiful costume, to the beats of samba, on one of the biggest ground stages in the world.
This one-of-a-kind costume package allows you to live all the thrill and the excitement of the Carnival celebration. Can you picture yourself parading with one of Rio’s famous samba schools, dancing to the rhythms of Carnival, and singing the samba with thousands of people watching? The event is broadcasted live to millions of people around the globe. Parading will boost your feelings from the time you dress in your costume, through the warming up time at the “concentracao,” to the end when your show is over.
You will be dancing and singing while parading. It’s a mile-long runway that demands energy and the will to win. Each of the participants in every school has an essential goal. Each and every one must put their utmost energy into the performance for the school. Your performance will also be fundamental for your school’s scores, and they will count on you.
You will learn and sing the lyrics of your samba song. The chorus of all the participants and the power of the drums are what make the crowd in the bleachers go wild and will win points for your school. The judges will also take into consideration how well the paraders know the samba song and how well they sing it and dance to it.
The cariocas, residents of Rio de Janeiro, will already know all the samba songs of the year. You should be as good as they are. Remember that you don’t need to know how to samba, just be willing to learn and give it your all.
