20 years of Oficina da Capoeira

Today in Brazil is the final day of a week long celebration - 20 years of Oficina da Capoeira!

So today is a good day to thank Mestre Ray for founding our school, and Mestrando Primo and Instrutor Nego Lua for growing Oficina da Capoeira in the UK.

Here are some of the celebrations:

Oficina da Capeoria was founded in Belo Horizonte, Brazil, and is now an international capoeira school with groups all around the globe.

Oficina da Capoeira has been in Chichester since May 2015 - and as we look forward to the new year we have a number of events to look forward to as we continue to grow:

Firstly we welcome Mestrando Primo for a capoeira workshop on January 28th; we will be celebrating our second anniversary in the last weekend of May, and I am pleased to announce the dates for the 1st International Capoeira Festival
