From a few hours before dawn, the dancers of Casa Dance Studio are ready for the first show.
The studio is located in a strip mall in the heart of the Brazilian capital, Brasilia, just a stone’s throw from the bustling main thoroughfare.
This is the home of the city’s biggest dance club, Casa de la Vida, which attracts more than 15,000 people a month.
This week, the club’s first show was to be the first in its 15-year history.
With its pink-and-yellow walls, colorful posters and neon lights, Caso Dance Studio is the most colourful venue in the world, said DJ Daniel, who runs the club.
“You see all these celebrities, so there’s a big difference when you’re here,” he said.
The club was founded in 2010, and is run by the famous DJ Roberto Castillo, who has also managed the dance club for decades.
“We’re a Brazilian club, we don’t play dance music,” said Castillo.
“I think Casa is a real hit for Brazil, because there’s such a strong passion for dancing.”
The first dance club in Brazil opened in Brazil in the late 1970s, but Casa wasn’t a hit with the country’s elite until the 1990s, when the city was in a recession.
Then the club opened its doors in 2009, and by the end of 2010, Casas population had grown from 6,000 to 15,200 people.
The dance club’s popularity has been boosted by its low price.
According to Daniel, “the price is lower than the other dance clubs in Brazil.
You can go to a club in New York for 10 dollars.”
The cost of a drink at Casa has been cut by 50 percent, and a DJ told me that the staff had the same experience.
The price is the only difference: the club has been completely renovated and is now run by a family who has had to take on some new responsibilities, Daniel said.
The club is open daily from 8:00am to 5:00pm, and there is a daily free event from 6:00 to 9:00.
The venue has a total of 12 dancers, most of whom are between the ages of 15 and 35, and has a DJ who is also a professional dancer.
“They don’t take a break.
They don’t give a s—,” said one of the dancers.
Another dancer told me: “We go to the dance school, and we’re always in the studio.
We do all our choreography in the club, but we do everything together.”
This is a very Brazilian way to dance, said Daniel, adding that the club is one of a few Brazilian dance clubs that offer free lessons for dance students, which has allowed Casa to maintain its reputation as a top Brazilian dance venue.
Daniel, who was born in Rio de Janeiro, started the club at the age of seven, when he took part in a free dance class.
“At the time, it was like I was in school, so I went to the school and learned how to do all these movements.
The only thing I didn’t know was how to dance,” he told me.
Daniel says the club had more than a thousand dancers when he first opened it in 2010.
By 2014, he had a total audience of 8,000.
The music has been inspired by Latin American dance styles.
“There are Latin American dances and Brazilian dances that have influenced me a lot,” said Daniel.
“The Brazilian style of dancing is very much rooted in Brazilian dance traditions, like dancing with the legs on the floor, and then using your hands to create rhythm.
I wanted to make something that was like that, so it was very hard to make a Brazilian style dance.”
The club has a number of unique features.
For example, the ceiling is covered in white paint, and the dance floor is made from reclaimed wood, which is then heated to a high temperature to create a high-temperature rubber floor.
The music is recorded at the club by a Brazilian DJ, and some of the dancing is performed in Brazilian accent.
Daniel said the club aims to be open seven days a week, and to provide lessons every Tuesday.
“If we’re open, we’re going to have the best experience, and if we’re closed, we’ll have a very sad experience,” he explained.
The Casa dance club is a success story, and it is still thriving in Brazil, Daniel told me, but there is one big problem: the dance program is very expensive.
“It costs $250 for two lessons, $500 for three lessons, and $1,000 for four lessons.
We can’t compete with the other clubs,” he added.
The DJ said that the most expensive lesson cost $300, which was enough to cover the cost of the entire year’s lessons, which included three sessions and a private lesson.
“One of the reasons we can’t beat
