capoeira santa fe news

For the past two months we have been conducting our classes through Zoom online, including the kids class. Here we do movements taking animal puppets as inspirations, practice songs, and now also have a great coloring book to spend time with. As of this week we will also start going outside again in the park to do some capoeira, respecting the social distancing rules and taking care of everyone staying healthy. Time will be 6pm and the specific park and day of week is subject to appointment. Tell us on our contact form if you are interested in coming sometime.

We are a 501c3 non-profit organization with the mission to grow capoeira in Santa Fe, go and do outreach in the schools, start social programs, produce dance and music presentations, offer physical trainings, and invigorate the exchange with Brazil. We are supported in part by an award from New Mexico Arts, a division of the Department of Cultural Affairs, with support from the National Endowment for the Arts. A big thank you to the folks at the Round House!
