Another fantastic opportunity this year was to be part of Black history month at Brookes University, with the 2021 theme of ‘Proud to Be’.
“Black History Month provides an opportunity for us to learn, share and celebrate black heritage and culture, in Oxford Brookes University and beyond.”
The fascinating and vibrant series of movements known as Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music. Originally practiced by Africans enslaved in Brazil, it has since become celebrated and practiced around the world.
Abolição Oxford Capoeira is pleased to present a Capoeira workshop which will include an introduction to the history and context of Capoeira as well as the opportunity to safely learn and practice Capoeira techniques and principal movements. No experience is needed and this class is suitable for complete beginners.
Abolição Oxford Capoeira provides classes, workshops and performances and contributes to the wider promotion of the Brazilian martial and cultural art form in Oxford. You can find out more about them at www.capoeira-uk.com.
