Do you guys have hip hop music and dance in brazil? I have only seen the carnivals but it is more of an erotic dance.

Pardon, but Carnival is not 'erotic dance'. I prefer to assume that you don't know it well.
Plus, carnival is not a dance. It's a celebration. Which is HUGE here. In Carnival many ways of dance are used: samba, axé,and MANY other regional dances. Brazil has TONS.
Maybe you should have researched before making this thread, because I found it very discriminating.
Sorry if that was not your intention, but I took it that way.

I am sorry to make you feel discriminated. I was just wondering if rap, hip hop, breakdancing,etc... is in Brazil. My best friends husband is from Rio de Janeiro, Brazil and I have never heard him talk about rap or hip hop in Brazil. Everytime that I go to visit them he is watching the Brazilian channel on TV and I see the game shows and the carnivals, where the girls are dancing. The type of dance that they do is sexy like, along with the costumes. No one said that this was a bad thing. I think that they look good and so do the guys. What I was asking was what is the popularity of hip hop in Brazil? I would love to go to a carnival. I was not saying that I think that is the only dance in Brazil. I know that their are others. I was wondering about hip hop. Sorry.

It's alright, I understand your point now. Sorry to take you in a wrong way.

Yes, there's hip hop and rap around here, with dances and so on. We have brazilian rap, it's a bit different from the american one though. American is very popular around here.
And hip hop dance is called street dance here.

That was not a negative response, you heard exactly what I heard in the writer's words, and it is true that people outside of a particular culture are given the wrong ideas of the culture, plus you did put it right about HIP HOP, it is called Street Dance, Hip Hop is the culture in which street dance comes from......we all must begin to study, and stop the doing for doing sake.
