"Bale Folclorica da Bahia" Salvador Things to Do Tip by oceania26

Salvador Things to Do: 19 reviews and 23 photos

Everyday except Tuesdays from 8:00pm to 9:00pm the San Miguel Theatre holds a performance for $R 25 (more than worth it). This an amazing show by really enthusiastic and athletically gifted performers and I highly recommend it.

A small intimate crowd can see 6 dances that are specific to the Bahian culture:

Orixas Pantheon
Fire Dance
Fisherman Dance
Macuelle
Capoiera
Samba de Roda

You can find amateur dancers all over Pelourinho performing Caporiera but seeing things young men perform was just incredible...mesmerizing. I never heard of Caporiera until I started researching about Salvador and I'm now hooked on it.

Go the theatre in advance to buy tickets...about an hour before at least, earlier during peak season.

Address: Rua Gregoria de Matos, 49 - Pelourinho
Directions: You will see a sign for Teatro San Miguel, can't really miss it.

Review Helpfulness: 3.5 out of 5 stars
