Dear Community,

First let me congratulate our little capoeiristas for their wonderful performance at this year's youth graduation. I loved seeing everyone's hard work shine.

In other news, after a few good months of many changes and searching, we are proud to announce that we found a new space for our class. Our current location has grown small on us so we are moving down the street. With our new home, we have a new schedule. We look forward to growing strong with you and your family. Thank you for your constant support.

All the best,

Professora Minha Velha

Capoeira Batuque's 29th Annual Youth Batizado

It's time for your budding capoeiristas to start preparing for their Batizado! 

What is a Batizado?

"A Batizado (baptism) is a graduation ceremony where new students receive their first Capoeira Cordao (belt), Capoeira Apelido (nickname) and are “officially” welcomed into the art form of Capoeira. Each student plays with a Mestre in order to blessed and welcomed to the Capoeira world. The Mestre that plays against the student become their Godfather, and the same Mestre gives the student their Capoeira name during the ceremony. Students who have already been through their first Batizado excel to receive their next belt. This is a 3 day celebration filled with workshops, performances, events and a celebration at the beach. We are proud to welcome and host World Renowned Capoeira Masters for this event to honor the children hard work throughout the year. It is very special to witness them teach, interact and graduate our students.This is truly a very exciting time in one's Capoeira journey. We can’t wait to share it with you all!"
