Contra Mestre Bomba will be teaching workshops at the Ginga Capoeira Batizado in New York City this weekend, so there will NOT be classes this Saturday or Sunday, October 16th – October 17th.

If you are interested in training as a group please join the Barro Vermelho Capoeira of Washington DC Facebook Group and let us know. If there is enough interest and the weather permits, we can meet up in a DC park to practice our techniques.
