Mini Carnival

For small events or simply for lack of space or tight schedule, a valid alternative can be to hire their dance group and female Brazilian vocalist dancer performing to backing tracks. Although we always recommend this line-up, you can also choose to book the dancers without the singer.

When you book the line-up with the vocalist dancer, she will also entertain the audience singing up tempo Latin & Brazilian songs as well as Latin pop and contemporary charts to quality backing tracks. Besides, the dancers can run a short basic steps dance workshop for your guests to join the dancers in their routine. Be assured that they will create an exciting party time! In addition, the singer can also perform a background music set featuring a classy repertoire of smooth Latin jazz and Brazilian bossa nova. This would be ideal for wedding reception or to delight your guest while dining. A Capoeira Show can also be included within this performance.

Capoeira Show

Capoeira dance is a Brazilian tradition going back hundreds of years, whereby the performers will stand around dancers each doing a short burst of dance, which is the original inspiration for modern day break-dancing. A typical set is 2 performers providing 2-3 numbers of 5-7 minutes each. 4 performers can push the length of performance up to 10 minutes each set. This show can be booked separately or incorporated within any of Carnival's shows.

Whichever show you choose, Carnival's team will ensure every detail is catered for leaving you and your guests with an amazing memory from one of the UK's finest world music artists.

Thank you for all your efforts in bringing a musical piece of Brazil to Buxton for the evening and making the Ball the huge success that it was.

The dancers were fantastic. The conditions were far from ideal with no stop torrential rain but they coped brilliantly. We had many compliments regarding their performance with many saying they were the star act! Please pass on my thanks to them and we very much hope they will be able to come back next year- when we will have the big marquee in place and no rain issues!
