If you've ever fancied learning some traditional Brazilian dance steps, picking up some local musical know-how or just felt the urge to take part in a colorful Rio street parade, this is the place to come. From its headquarters in the unassuming suburb of Tijuca, Instituto de Arte TEAR runs courses in Brazilian arts, theatre, dance and music, as well as organizing cultural excursions and staging public events from street parades and parties to theater and dance productions. Non-Portuguese speakers are welcome to enroll in many of the courses, and visitors are welcome just to come along and look around.
