UTS Capoeira Club
The Women’s Capoeira Encounter 2013 is being organised by our very own Formanda Mariana Potiguara and UTS Capoeira Club. This event celebrates International Women’s Day (the 8th of March).
This yearly event promotes Capoeira for Women, introducing Capoeira as a sport and form of art to the Sydney community. Capoeiristas from different ages, backgrounds, groups and levels of Capoeira have the same intention for this event : to make new friends, share knowledge and experience, and to be inspired by each other.
Mariana will be back teaching the class this Saturday (as in 25th August – 11am)! It will be her first class to us as Formanda, which is exciting!
This should be a great class. Time to train hard and prepare as we start the final month before our 3rd Batizado.
Now that Mariana is back, she will also be offering some complimentary trial classes if you or your friends are interested in trying Capoeira.
Trial classes are scheduled for:
Thursday 30th of August, 2012 at 6:30pm (Newtown)
Saturday 1st of september, 2012 at 11:00am (UTS)
Tuesday 4th of september, 2012 at 6:30pm (UTS)
Look forward to seeing you in training!
This month is the UTS Capoeira Club president Mariana’s birthday. Parabens para voçê, Mariana.
