Why locals love it

Inaugurated in 1943 to house a restaurant and a dance floor, this Oscar Niemeyer's masterpiece is one of the city's postcard. The place was closed in 1948 due to the lack of regulars, being used for commercial purposes since then. In 2002, after a restauration leaded by Niemeyer himself, the building was reopened, and today it hosts several events.

Why you should visit it

If you don't dance, don't worry. Probably you won't shake your body at the Dance House. Instead, you might see a temporary exhibition or be a part of some event. If none of these suits you, the building itself is a major attraction, sorrounded by the Pampulha Lagoon and the gardens designed by the noted brazilian landscaper Roberto Burle Marx.

Special tip

Follow the Dance House's page on Facebook ( and check the events.
