2017 Batizado + Troca de Cordas

In Capoeira, the Batizado is the highlight and most important event of the year. It is an annual ceremony an celebration during which new capoeiristas are officially “initiated” into the art/group and receive their capoeira name (apelido), while existing students advance to their next level/cord color. The initiation itself consists of each student playing a “game” of Capoeira with an advanced capoeirista; after the game is over, the student is given a new cord with their level’s color. In addition to the Batizado ceremony, the event will include a warm-up, Capoeira & Maculelê performances (by your children), lots of singing, music, food and refreshments at the end.
