Welcome

Welcome to the 30th anniversary for Capoeiraskolen Senzala, where we celebrate the realisation of the dream and vision of capoeira for all people, across age, gender, race, and religion.

A house shaped by the thousand of people who through the past 30 years have been a part of the journey, and against all norms is stronger than ever.

It will be amazing to gather once again to celebrate life, each other, and capoeira.

Everyone is welcome, we are looking forward to seeing you.

Classes

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.
