This Holiday Season at the ACC

December is a beautiful month in New York City: the city shimmers with Christmas lights, Menorah lights, themed windows and events, no other city in the world really does this season like New York! And the Arte Capoeira Center participates by getting right into the spirit.

Our Christmas tree has arrived, it is here among the atabaques, berimbaus and sparring gloves waiting for the official ACC decorating crew to dress it up tonight.





Decorations are up!



The festivities open this Saturday 12/14 at 5.30 pm with the annual Arte Capoeira Center Holidays party, an event open to all Abada Capoeira students and their families. It is especially cherished by all of us at the ACC as it is an occasion to meet up and get to know each other a little better outside the roda (but what to get to know can be used later IN the roda;) ). The first part of the party is dedicated to kids with capoeira games and Secret Santa gift exchange. It will be followed by buffet (it’s pot-luck so bring your Holiday season specialties!), music and games for all before Secret Santa arrives for everybody.


The other regular Holiday event is the New Year Open Roda followed by churrasco. The date is set for Saturday January 4, 2014, this year we will check out a new Brazilian restaurant in Queens, stay tuned for more info…

The Holidays schedule:

ACC will be closed: December 24+25+31, 2013, January 1, 2014, all the other days regular schedule unless otherwise announced.

Last but not least, have you considered to share your passion for capoeira with a loved one? Until January 2nd 2014, the Arte Capoeira Center offers 20% off all monthly/10-class gift cards for new students. Give the gift of capoeira, share the Axe’!



Happy Holidays! Boas Festas! May the Joy Be With You!
