Yesterday, Saturday 3rd of July, we held our first fundraising event to raise some money towards our batizado ! Everything was here to have an awesome night !
Great food, great people, great drinks and awesome atmosphere! Everyone pitched in to bring good food and drinks ! Our cooks of the night – Pena and Tatu – tamed the barbecue to cook great meat for us.
The best part of the night was yet to come. Jenny offered her house for us to organize this evening (thanks so much Jenny!) and we all watched with a projector on the living room wall a beautiful documentary about capoeira. We learned about the place of capoeira in the world, especially in Europe and in the United States.
After this great documentary, we watched some videos that were taken during the workshop with Mestre Paulinho Sabia last December. We watched ourselves play in the roda, and we were able to analyse our game in more details, see what we needed to improve and our behaviours in the roda. It was quite interesting to have this reflexion upon our game.
At the end of the night, a raffle took place, with some great prizes like capoeira t-shirts and accessories, as well as chocolate baskets … Yummy ! Some of us were lucky, some others weren’t, and got comforted by candies and chocolates !
In other words, this night gave us the opportunity to get together to share some capoeira moments, and, as Fogueira put it quite beautifully, it was a small ginga towards our batizado !
Many thanks to Potiguara, Jenny and Suado for the organization, and many many thanks to everyone who came last night !
