The 16th Scandinavian Capoeira Meeting


It is with great pleasure that the Capoeiraskolen Senzala invites you to attend the 16th Scandinavian Capoeira Meeting, celebrating the 50 year anniversary of Grupo Senzala with world-class capoeira May 2-5, 2013.

Capoeira masters and high level practitioners, together with students from Denmark and abroad, will bring a fresh breeze from outside and allow everyone to experience and be challenged by the beautiful, powerful and magical art of capoeira. The event takes place in DGI-byen’s optimal sporting facilities which lie close to the Copenhagen Central Station.


Seven 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.

In addition, there will be a lecture  on the proud history of Grupo Senzala by Mestre Itamar, who is one of the still active founders of our group, and was a personal friend of Mestre Peixinho. There will also be a percussion workshop for both adults and children with Michael Aabye; along with airtrack/acrobatics training and a party on Saturday night.

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.

Batizado & Troca de Corda

Thursday and Saturday, the students are celebrated with the yearly capoeira party. The newest Senzala students are baptized at the Batizado, where they play with a mestre or high level artist 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.
