27th Scandinavian Capoeira Meeting

May 10-12, 2024

It is with great pleasure that we welcome you to the traditional annual event, the 27th Scandinavian Capoeira Meeting, with the graduation of all the Capoeiraskolen Senzala's students.

The weekend is a fantastic, concentrated body culture injection, where everyone recharges their capoeira batteries and is again reminded of the importance of immersion and the enrichment of each other's company. An atmosphere that throughout the 3 days is always very special and leaves everyone with the desire for much more.

Capoeira masters from home and abroad will teach adults at three levels, and children will be divided by age.

We hope that all Capoeiraskolen Senzala's students will participate in this fantastic cultural meeting across age, gender, nationality and capoeira groups, to enjoy the beautiful and magical capoeira.

The event takes place in
DGI-byen, Tietgensgade 65, Copenhagen

Batizado & Troca de Corda

On Friday and Saturday, students are celebrated with this year's capoeira party.

During the batizado, the school's newest students will receive their capoeira baptism as they battle a champion or high-level graduate for the first time with the entire invited capoeira community, family and friends as witnesses. The more advanced students will be awarded new belts on merit.

Guest tickets can be purchased at the registration desk at the school and in DGI-Byen during the event and cost DKK 80 for adults and DKK 60 for children (4+ years).

Thank you

An event of this size cannot be organised without a lot of help.

This year's beautiful design is made by Brazilian artist Karla Aires Imbiriba Guarani-Kaiowá.

A big thank you to Thomas Hess for his help with the website and Rasmus Sørensen for the great layout of the Batizado t-shirt, wristband and poster.

To Asta Møller for enrolling and selling clothes, and to Lykke Rødtnes for her hard work making the many belts.

To Peter Rasmussen for setting up the fantastic lighting for the shows, to Søs Bergmann for making sure the masters and helpers get food and drink - and to all of you who help out along the way, in big and small ways.
