The Youth Samba School “Pimpolhos of Grande Rio” presents the carnival arts through a creative program focused on socioeconomic sustainability. This is Carnival Experience – which serves, throughout the year, visiting touristsof Rio de Janeiro.
In the Samba School “Grande Rio”, 70% of the fixed components graduated from Pimpolhos. The Carnival Experience project contributes to train more and more professionals in production, dance, music, visual arts, beauty and foreign languages.
