According to All Souls’ website the building will be closed tomorrow so there will not be capoeira class. Please let your classmates know! 

Hope to see you Thursday instead!



Headed to Columbia Heights Day? You won’t want to miss it!!

At 1:30 pm to 2 pm, Capoeira Barro Vermelho will put on a mini-class and do some capoeira play on Harriet Tubman Elementary School’s field at Kenyon from 11th to 13th Streets. 

PLEASE come out and show your support by participating in the class! Everyone is invited.

This will be a great time to get a taste of capoeira in general and learn more about the classes and October specials. 

Capoeira class tonight is canceled because of the tornado watch. See you on Thursday!

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.
