Mestre Peixinho had a vision about a great international capoeira meeting, that represented his work outside of Brazil, which we through many years have created and developed further. It is with great pleasure that we now can invite you all to participate in the 22nd Scandinavian Capoeira Meeting, during May 10-12, 2019.
Capoeira masters will be giving classes, which for adults are at three levels, while the children are split up according to age. All are welcome.
Come and feel the power and energy created when people join together across the boundaries of nationality, age, and gender – to battle, sing and dance in an explosive, positive and musical atmosphere.
Friday and Saturday, the students are celebrated with the annual capoeira party.
The newest Senzala students are baptized at the Batizado, where they play with a mestre or high level capoerista for the first time in public, with the whole extended capoeira community, along with family and friends as witnesses.
More experienced students will be given new belts according to their progress.
Saturday, after the Batizado, we celebrate the event with a Brazilian party. Everyone is welcome to join, for drinks and great latin music on the dance floor.
The party is held at Café Kellerdirk on Frederiksberg.
Entrance to the party is DKK 80, age 18+.
In order to avoid delays on Friday, early registration will be available at all classes during the week before the event.
Normal registration at DGI-byen will begin on Friday at 09:30, as well as the following days upon arrival at training.
A wrist band is issued at registration, which should be worn during the event.

This year we cannot offer accomodation at our academy. We can recommend the following hotels and hostels, all in walking distance from the venue:

An event of this magnitude cannot be made without a lot of assistance.
