RIO CARNIVAL 2012, Greatest Show on Earth

Rio de Janeiro Carnival is the Largest of Brazil's Carnival Celebrations.
The purpose of carnival is for samba schools to compete with fellow rival schools; this competition is the climax of the whole carnival festival. Each school chooses a theme to try and portray in their entry. The samba schools work to build the best floats and costumes to represent their themes, and to include the best music they can from their band called the bateria. There are many parts to each school's entry including the six to eight floats and thousands of participants.
In Brazil, Carnival is generally considered to have started in 1723 by settlers from the Portuguese Islands. Then in 1840, masquerade balls started, with street parades becoming part of the festivities about ten years later, leading to samba ingrained with Carnival by 1917.In 1928, the samba schools emerged as part of the Carnival culture and quickly began to shape the parading on the streets of Rio. As the popularity and competition between schools increased, the Sambódromo was eventually built in 1984 to house event, which continues to grow exponentially in splendor and extravagance.
On February 22, 2012 Unidos da Tijuca samba school and Veniamin A.K.A. Human Slinky was declared the winner of the Rio Carnival 2012.

Slinky Girl

My name is Gabriella Oprea and I am nine years old talent. At age four I planing to be a Human Slinky and start practicing this act with my parents. Before I was born I have already been on stage for weeks and mom taught me everything she could before birth. Performing from the womb is bit like going for a ride in a washing machine. Now I enjoy watching and learning from both my mom and dad. I am finding that this performance stuff is hard work and takes lots of patience and practice. I plan to have perfected my performance and look forward to seeing you on stage. © All Rights Reserved, Ioan Veniamin Oprea Life+Fifty Years Veniamin® Veniamin Shows® Human Slinky TM
