Brazil's British Carnival dancer

Carnival is underway in Rio this weekend, and this year a British dancer with no professional dance training will be taking part.

Samantha Flores, who moved to Rio from London, will be the top dancer on the lead float.

It's the first time that the Império da Tijuca samba school has chosen a non-Brazilian principal dancer in its 78-year history.
