Brazil Carnival 2011 is on its way, and Rio Samba-Schoolsare all getting ready with a series of practices and rehearsals to make sure everything runs smooth on the final dates. Below we show videos involving 3 exciting samba-schools. We hope you enjoy the videos and start getting prepared for the 2011 Brazilian Carnival.
Below, you will see a joint rehearsal promoted by São Clemente Samba School in Rio de Janeiro. They invited the Beija-Flor for this beautiful party with its "sister school" , as they call themselves. Here, legendary Flag-Bearer Selminha Sorrizo from Beija-Flor, and her partner, theSamba host Claudinho, perform a very traditional, but rare to witness ceremony: the exchange of the Samba-school flag banners. Here you will see the Flag Bearer couples dancing their ballet with the banner of the host school, and vice-versa. Really emotional!
