ABADÁ-Capoeira: Youth + Adult Batizado and Graduation Ceremony
October 23, 2022 @ 11:00 am - 1:00 pmFree
ABADÁ-Capoeira San Francisco, a women-led capoeira school and 30-year stronghold of the Mission District, will hold its annual youth + adult batizado performance and graduation ceremony in a public venue for the first time ever. In this traditional ritual, new students are initiated into the world of capoeira by playing with a master-level artist and continuing students may receive a new cord (like a karate belt) in recognition of their growth. Top-level guest artists from Brazil and throughout the US will perform throughout the event. This performance is family-friendly, so bring a picnic and come experience Brazilian arts.
