On July 11, 2015, the annual ‘Baile do Juventus‘ (youth dance) was held in Sao Paulo, Brazil for young adults of The Church of Jesus Christ of Latter-day Saints.

The large event is a place for Latter-day Saint young adults to have fun while being in an environment that aligns with their standards. The dance is put on by a committee of members of the Church and is supervised by an area seventy.

Because there are no singles wards in Brazil, these types of events are very well attended as they give attendees the chance to get to know other single adults in the country. At least 50 stakes participated in the event, with over 2,000 young single adults in attendance.
