Each dance troupe or clube (in Portuguese) danced to exhaustion for about 20 minutes

The performers danced with such vigor we were exhausted just watching time

We were hosted by the Mayors office for this cultural event.  There were so many excellent groups dance that it was hard to say which was best

We drank beer and partied on the Belo Horizonte mayor's platform
