2024 Batizado: BATIZADO

Admission to Batizado and Roda for Capoeiristas(T-shirt not included)

  • 25 US dollars
  • UCA Hayward

Service Description

The batizado is a celebration of initiation for new students.  It is when new students play capoeira with a teacher to receive their first cordão(cord/belt).  It is a tradition that began with Mestre Bimba as a way to recognize a new student's understanding of the beginning steps of capoeira. It was a right of passage that typically happened in class, amongst peers. Today it has become a community celebration that includes the Troca de Cordões(changing of belts) when older students receive their next cordões.  We invite special guest teachers to give workshops, our friends come share their energy to celebrate with us, we have rodas, play music, and ultimately we make our capoeira community stronger. Join us on March 7-10 as we celebrate our art once again.
