WATCH! Highlights Video From Our Batizado 2018
Capoeira Arts Festival and Student Graduation
FOR MAKING OUR 8TH ANNUAL BATIZADO A SUCCESS!
To students and families who made our 8th annual Batizado Capoeira Arts Celebration and Student Graduation a total success!
Over 300 people were part of this memorable event held last Saturday, June 16. We cannot be any more proud of the commitment of our students and families who know first-hand the power of Capoeira as a medium to promote principles and values – respect, cooperation, grit, empathy, tolerance – and believe in the work of ABADA-Capoeira Bronx.
Thank you to all who came together to execute a phenomenal two-weeks of events; beginning with the NYC Games and Music Night, followed by Master Workshop Series with Mestrando Bode and culminating with our grand annual Batizado event.

Get ready for Batizado 2018! This is the event where we recognize students’ commitment, and celebrate capoeira cultural arts along with friends, families and international guests artists from abroad.
As customary, prior to our grand event, a Master Workshops series will take place where students will train with guest of honor, Mestrando Bode, from Brazil. This year, we are thrilled to also host the NYC Games, open to all ABADA NY capoeiristas, taking place at beautiful Van Cortlandt Park and an open mic music night – you don’t want to miss this week of events!
