Dancing samba involves a lot of hip mobility with some level of control on the fluidity of the hip joint. As you keep moving back and forth and sideways, you get to train yourself on how to move your hip joint safely and yet effectively. And with better control over your hip movement, you get better movement in many other ways. Dancers have to look graceful and elegant while on the dance floor. But to achieve this, you will need to master the proper body alignments depending on your body type and the kind of dance you are engaging in. For samba, confidence is key and this means you will have to learn how to look confident. A confident body alignment is actually the proper body posture where your head is held high and your shoulders look firm.
Queen of the Drummers and the Bateria – They are led by a beautiful female samba dancer, the Queen of the Drummers, who introduces the drummers to the crowd, motivating them all the way down the samba strip. Lucky is the lady who is selected to be Queen of the Drummers for her samba school. It is not unusual for a popular celebrity to be tasked with this role. However, even the celebrity is expected to take her part seriously and attend all rehearsals. She must captivate her audience during the Carnival and win their support.
The city of Rio de Janeiro, with its evocative name, brings to mind golden sand beaches populated by sun-kissed bodies by day and the passion of the samba by night. Many people consider this to be the most beautiful city setting in the world, and UNESCO cited “the staggeringly beautiful location for one of the world’s biggest cities” in naming Rio a World Heritage Site. The best way to appreciate Rio is to rush headlong into the experiences and attractions with passion and gusto. Corcovado, Sugarloaf, Copacabana, and Ipanema are the top places to start but there are many must-see places. When you’re done touring the sites, hit the beach, and then head out in the evening for first-class dining, to see a football game, or to enjoy the nightlife.
On the hill just above the harbor are the church and monastery of São Bento, one of the finest Benedictine complexes in Brazil. The original 1617 church was without aisles until it was enlarged in the second half of the 17th century by the addition of eight side chapels. The finest artists of the Benedictine order were involved in decorating the interior. The exuberant carving that covers the walls and ceiling was mainly the work of a monk named Domingos da Conceição, who was also responsible for the figures of St. Benedict and St. Scholastica on the high altar. The choir chapel has silver work by Mestre Valentim and 14 paintings by Ricardo do Pilar, a monk who was the foremost Benedictine painter of colonial Brazil. His masterpiece, Senhor dos Martírios (Christ of the Passion), is in the sacristy of the monastery.
The samba schools start planning their program next year as soon as this year’s Carnival is over. Musicians, architects, fashion designers, and choreographers work throughout the year to present 80 minutes of mind-blowing samba mania. Each artist puts forth his or her best effort to ensure their samba school’s show will be the most amazing of all. Unlike Rio’s famous street parties, the samba parade is a highly orchestrated event with each individual having a particular role to play according to the school’s theme. On Sunday and Monday the 12 top samba schools that include Beija-Flor, Mocidade, Salgueiro, Portela, Unidos da Tijuca, and Mangueira, among others. The number of points a samba school earns during the Sambadrome competition determines its place in next year’s competition. Those with fewer points compete in the lower groups and those with higher points strut their stuff in the elite group.
