VI ENCONTRO DE BAMBAS 2013
Please come join us in our Celebration!
A three day celebration full of Capoeira workshops and rodas, kids games and presentations. Lots of fun for everyone! See this amazing art that has grown so much around the world. Come support your friends and family. And if you have never seen or tried Capoeira, maybe you are a Capoeirista and just don’t know about it!!!
WHERE: CAMPUS OF BOSTON UNIVERSITY
WHEN: November 15, 2013 through November 17, 2013
FOR THE GENERAL PUBLIC COMING TO SUNDAY BATIZADO
Your invitation to view the works of Sinha is an opportunity to experience the underground culture of Capoeira.
You will witness the traditional roda ceremony; live Afro-Brazilian music and a style of movement that blurs the line between fight and dance. Unlike any performance you have seen, the art form you will experience will be complete improvisation. Performers will flow to the rhythm of music and respond to their opponents in ways unrehearsed.
The best time to arrive at the Batizado on Sunday is between 1:00pm and 2:00pm
FOR FIRST TIME CAPOEIRISTAS
The Batizado is capoeira’s culminating event; it is a festival of culture, a celebration of music, it is your formal initiation into the World of Capoeira as a member of Sinha.
But enough of rhetoric, this is what participating in a Batizado is actually like:
You will arrive Friday night and be blown away by the talent of capoeiristas from around the world. Their styles will be different but you may find someone at the very same level as yourself. The energy and music will be overwhelming and you will realize what we practice for.
On Saturday, you will attend workshops taught by other capoeira teachers. You will get a chance to see how other schools are taught and will learn more capoeira in one day than you ever have before.
On Sunday you will experience the ritual of the batizado, you will become a member of the capoeira community for life.

About Our Capoeira Classes In Boston & Massachusetts
Capoeira is an explosive high intensity workout, where you will learn to move with power and grace, have fun, and get into amazing shape fast. This unique class is designed to work the entire body; consisting of strength moves that emphasizes coordination, balance, and flexibility. It is a high endurance workout with intervals of various intensities that will challenge you. Capoeira is sometimes referred to as “Flashdance” workout as it will not only get you “fighting fit” but you will have a great time doing it.
Classes are based on traditional sequences and modern progression, which we practice while listening to traditional, sensational, and energetic Capoeira music (featuring berimbau, atabaque and pandeiro). Each class begins with movement games to warm-up, where specific exercises prepare one for training. During class there is partner and line-work, where the moves flow from one position to another and also where techniques are developed. We finish class with traditional ‘Capoeira roda’, displaying intuitive movements, building confidence and practice playing Capoeira music.
Capoeira with Contra-Mestre Chuvisquinho is fun, a challenge and a really effective fitness class. This unique class combines the Brazilian art of Capoeira with fitness science to deliver an unbelievable full body workout; where the elegance of dance, the power of martial arts and the rhythms and Brazilian music is displayed. You will love it!

We believe that Capoeira is a platform of freedom and expression. Therefore we always try to evolve Capoeira in its plenitude. Also without focusing our work in radically changing our own style and having Capoeira Regional as our main reference, we are constantly trying to keep up with its daily evolution.
We train Capoeira as a social form to keep its valuable culture of Brazil and expressive image strongly present. We focus on learning the martial art, music, acrobatics, artistic aspects just like those who practice Capoeira around the world.
Capoeira is not just known for being a healthy activity or a form of physical exercise, but also for teaching and having a mental and spiritual benefit; being that Capoeira teaches its students the elements needed for one search his or hers own freedom, and if allowed by the students over its body and soul. We base our work in the deep mentality of ‘Preservation’ while seeking a vision of one day being like Capoeira, without illusion, with our pleasures and obstacles that are to overcome; we search for a physical and mental evolution.read more
