More About Marcelo Chocolate:
Marcelo Chocolate is a household name in Brazil, his joyful and elegant performances have been capturing the hearts of Brazilians for more than 20 years. Especially enamored by his style have been some of Samba’s greatest singers, who’ve invited him to tour and appear in music videos: ALCIONE, MARTINHO DA VILA, ELZA SOARES, JAIR RODRIGUES, as well as ELBA RAMALHO, and ROBERTO CARLOS. He has become by far the most popular partner on Brazil’s “DANCING WITH THE STARS” coaching famous actresses and singers in the complexities of ballroom dance. A real carioca da gema, and dedicated manguerense (choreographer of the top samba school's «Comissao de Frente» in 2002), Chocolate lives and breathes his art-- to know him is to know the real Brasil.
Brasarte is offering an incredibly unique opportunity, unavailable elsewhere, to study with Marcelo Chocolate for a four week Samba intensive. Learn the joyful nuances of Rio Samba no Pe and/or the high energy beauty of Samba de Gafieira (partner samba). Choose to participate in either one or both series for a once in a lifetime experience with a true Master.
