Dragon School show

Abolicao Capoeira were invited to perform at the Dragon School in Oxford on May 15th. Negao has been leading workshops for pupils and the school recently awarded funding towards our exchange event planned for November. Pupils led a presentation on the history of Capoeira to an audience of 250 and joined us on stage for a roda and samba!

Big thanks to everyone who turned up to perform (Maculele grass skirts with no prior warning) and to the school for having us.

Contra-Mestre Negao and the Trust are hosting an amazing trip to Salvador, Brazil this Summer.

If you're into Capoeira, regardless of your level, this is a great chance to visit and train in the place where it all began. There will be regular classes, rodas, music/percussion workshops and close involvement with our Capoeira project for the incredible kids of Abaeté.

If this doesn't tempt you, maybe the ocean, fresh fish, beachside hotel, samba rhythms and capirinhas will.

The trip runs from 13th - 27th July and there are still places going. Download full details here
