IE Brazil Club Madrid Chapter

Written on October 21, 2014 by Campus Life in Geographic, Other Activities, Social

brazil club2014 has been a busy year for IE Brazil Club. March was all about the now-famous Brazilian Party, in which over 300 students gathered to enjoy some of the best of Brazil’s beats, dance moves and snacks, all of which was of course washed down with a few caipirinhas.

With a fresh new batch of students arriving in April, the club started focusing on two major events, IE Global Village and the 2014 Fifa World Cup, hosted in Brazil.  June 12th was a day to dive in the diversity the school is proud of, enjoying the food and culture of dozens of countries, and of course feijoada and açaí in the Brazilian booth (provided to over 100 people thanks to the remarkable effort of all Brazilian students, partners and even children!). That night, as a celebration party after Global Village, the Brazil Club and the Brazilian Embassy in Madrid invited all 600 students to watch the kick-off for the World Cup on big screens at the gardens of Casa do Brasil, a mansion owned by the Brazilian Government. With the help of cold beer and a lively crowd of 2,000 Brazilians who live in Madrid, we together celebrated the most popular ‘religions’ in Brazil: football and party. At the soundtrack of famous Brazilian band “Funk como le gusta”, it was a fantastic party to celebrate a great day. After the end of the World Cup, our successful prediction game (in which 6 students got prizes such as an iPad, an official Brazilian football jersey and a few bottles of cachaça) and our well-deserved summer break, the Brazil Club got together to eat some feijoada again (yes, we need this specific dish every other month… invariably!) and plan the second semester schedule, such as the all-day event for careers and companies “Brazilian Day”, and the legendary Brazilian Party (confirmed for the end of November) as a welcome party to our November intake students.

Since we are Latin-Americans and love being around people all the time, a Happy Hour with the BRIC clubs is already confirmed for October 23rd and another event with Mercosur countries (Brazil, Argentina, Uruguay and Paraguay) is very close to being announced. Stay tuned for our events!

Carnival has already gone…get ready for World Cup!

Written on May 21, 2014 by Campus Life in Geographic

brazil1One month and a half ago, IE Brazil Club – Madrid Chapter has promoted a crazily exciting week.

brazil 2The fun started on Tuesday, when a special Samba class was performed with the presence of more than 30 students. Thank you, IE Dance Club!!! On Thursday, Maria de Molina-31 hosted its first soccer-juggling contest. The winner scored amazingly 142 soccer juggling and was granted a free ticket for the party. Finally, on Friday, IE community came together and enjoyed one of the most expected events of the year: The Brazilian Party for 2014, that took place near Santiago Bernabeú Stadium, at Lolita Lounge & Club.

More than 300 people, from the different IE Masters’ courses, were present to the party and had the opportunity to know and taste a little bit more about the Brazilian culture.

A couple of traditional carnival dancers (passista and mulata) showed how to dance Samba followed by a live band that played until the midnight. The band was only interrupted for an amazing Capoeira performance, the combination of dance and martial art brought to Brazil by the Africans. Traditional drinks like Guaraná and Caipirinha were served and our guests could taste some Brazilian appetizers such as Brigadeiro.

Let’s get together to watch the matches, discuss the results, exchange stickers and guess which country will bring the Cup home.

Join our facebook page and stay tuned.

After rocking IE community on March with the Brazilian Party, Brazil Club invites you to rejoice for the World Cup.
