Due to the rainy weather, there will not be capoeira class today, usually scheduled for 10:30 – 12 noon in the upper grassy part of Meridian Hill/Malcolm X Park. If you are ever wondering, please check our Facebook Group, where we post the latest updates and news.

View our complete schedule of Washington DC capoeira classes.

We had such a great time working out in Malcolm X Park (aka Meridian Hill Park) the past two Saturdays, that we will continue having Saturday morning capoeira classes outdoors in Washington DC!

Please meet us at All Souls Church, 1500 Harvard St NW at 10:30 am; it is a short 2-block walk away from the Columbia Heights metro. From there, we’ll walk another quick 2 blocks to the northern entrance to Malcolm X park.

A few tips, as practicing in an outdoor environment has its own challenges:

  • Wear sneakers or cross trainers. Unless you like stepping on bottle caps, twigs and ants.
  • Bring plenty of water. Freeze your water bottle overnight if you like ice-cold water!
  • Put on sunscreen before class. Don’t let your skin match the red in our shirts and abadas!
  • Leave your valuables at home; you may not be able to keep a close eye on your iPod while you ginga.
  • Check our Facebook group for last-minute updates. In case of bad weather (rain or extreme heat) we will post any class updates on Facebook.

In return, you’ll get these primo benefits from an outdoor workout:

Bring a friend, pay $10 each!

  • Beautiful breezes and fresh air
  • Plenty of space to jog and practice
  • A heart-pounding, never-boring workout
  • All levels, including first-time beginners, are welcome
  • A fun way to stay in shape
  • Occasional surprise musical guests from fellow capoeiristas playing the berimbau and pandeiro! 
  • Personal instruction from the most authentic and most experienced capoeira regional teacher in Washington, DC.
Bonus:

Bring a friend and you’ll both pay $10! That’s right, 2 students can pair up to pay just $20 for all 90-minute Saturday morning classes outdoors in the park.  Otherwise the drop-in rate is the usual $15 per person, per class. (We also offer all-included monthly unlimited passes for $125.)

Additional Washington DC Capoeira Classes:

As always, we still have capoeira classes on Tuesdays and Thursdays at 7:00 – 8:00 pm at All Souls church, 1500 Harvard St NW, Washington DC.

This week during capoeria class, we received some lyrics to several of the songs commonly sung in capoeira, especially for our group Barro Vermelho.

I will post more as I find them. If you have any favorites or have used youtube to help you learn the lyrics, please post the links to the videos in the comments or in our Facebook group!

Due to the Memorial Day Weekend, capoeira classes will not meet on Sunday, May 27th at BloomBars (Columbia Heights, Washington, DC).
