Salvador da Bahia

Bale flocorico for kids?

Will be in Salvador in October and was wondering if the nightly florcorico dancing is suitable for kids? It seems like the theater is rather small, but the performance only lasts 45 minutes, all the kids in our group like music and dancing --so much I think they would want to walk around and dance!

It's about ten years since I lived in Salvador so bear in mind things may well have changed, but the show I saw was very much a theatre-style show. There wasn't much, if anything, in the way of proper audience participation. However, it is a very colourful display and probably quite different to anything they've seen before, so I think it's probably great for kids. And like bahiana77 says, Brazilians aren't precious about people being silent during shows (going to the cinema was often be an interesting experience for me!).

I also remember lots of live music in Salvador's old centre with people, including children, dancing in the streets, so I reckon your kids will get plenty of opportunities for dancing whether it's in an organised show or not. There are also dance classes which you can join as a one-off experience. Just too many opportunities to enjoy music - your main problem is you may not get round to them all!
