From January 2016 to Carnival

In the summer months, preparation for the Carnival gets busy and samba school hold at least one rehearsal a week.


In general, they happen in the hall of the sambaschool in the respective neighborhood or favela where they come from. One of the best known rehearsal nights is Mangueira rehearsal on Saturdays, in the favela Mangueira situated in the north Zone.

The doors open at 23.00 and it starts to get busy around midnight until 4.00 in the morning.


Who likes earlier rehearsals can check out the rehearsal of Alegria da Zona Sul in Copacabana beach on Sunday late afternoons 16.00-19.00. This one is even free of charge.

Thursday nights is the rehearsal of Academicos da Rocinha also in Zona Sul and not too far to get there.


Other rehearsals happen on other days, please ask me if you have a special day in mind when you would like to see a rehearsal.
