THE SAMBA PARADE 2014
NOW IS THE RIGHT TIME TO BOOK!!

Carnival main attraction is the Samba Parade show which is something everybody has to experience at least once in a life time. Today the event is broadcast to dozens of countries and all Brazilian states. Fourteen special group schools march on Carnival Sunday and Monday, seven each day. The parade starts at 7 p.m. and goes on until sunlight the next day, around 6 a.m. This samba marathon is also a fierce competition. Each year two schools will go down from special to access group, and vice-versa.

A Samba School is an association of people from the same neighborhood, usually a popular community (favela) or suburban area. They get together on a regular basis for samba meetings and rehearsals. Samba schools provide valuable jobs to the community in the production of costumes, and floats. Each year schools choose a different theme Samba Schools may take to the Parade anything from 3,000 to 5,000 members, and from 6 to 8 floats. They have to make it through the runway in a period from 60 to 80 minutes. This means each member will spend only about 25-30 minutes in the Sambodrome. The experience is so intense, though, that memories will last a lifetime.

The parade of every school is highly organized and designed. They line up in a unique way to present their pageant. The schools are divided into a number of sections and each section has a number of wings of about 100 people wearing the same costume. Sometimes even 2 wings (app. 200 people) have the same costume. You will find more details about the role and name of some special sections of the Parade on the other side of this page.

In between the wings, there are about 10 Carnival floats, separating the sections. Most of them are pushed along by men from the School's community but some are motorized and have mechanical parts. The floats carry special guests along with some young and mesmerizing samba dancers in very elaborate, awe-inspiring costume creations.

 

Preparations for the big Rio Samba Parade start in the year preceding Carnaval, with each samba school counts with thousands of supporters to make it happen. Months before the parade, a theme is chosen at every samba school. Then, after a fierce competition, the song is picked. Last, the costumes and floats are secretly created by locals inside their communities

The rehearsals take place by beginning of December - three months before the big samba parade - with carnavalescos - the school "architect" - choreographing the dances and the movements. By the same time, samba songs are released, recorded and sent to record stores for the entire population to get familiarized with.

The Special Group is formed by twelve samba schools, with six schools parading in each of the two first nights - Sunday February 10 and Monday February 11. These two parades have a very similar setting and importance. A drawing conducted by the organizers determines which schools parade when.

The winner and 5 runners-up from the Special Group make part of the Winners' Parade the Saturday after Carnival, February 16 this year.

The Access Group is composed by 12 samba schools, which all of them parading on Saturday February 9. The winner and the runner up are promoted to parade with the Special Group at the following year. The two less qualified also descend to Group B, which parades on Thursday February 8.
