Class time changes
In 2018 we will be changing the times of our Wednesday classes. Instead of starting at 7pm, it will be as follows:
6.30-8pm: General Capoeira class for all levels
All other class times will remain the same. See our timetable for full information.
Batizado party news!
This year we are going to try something different for the Batizado party. On the Saturday, right after the day's workshops finish, we will all be heading down to Blend- a fantastic cafe on Sneinton Market Square. Blend serve a range of food, from full meals to toasties and cake, hot and cold drinks, and they have a license too, so have beer and wine.
It will be a chance to hang out, listen to music chat and relax after the most tiring day of the event. Then, from 9pm, Nottingham School of Samba will lead a samba percussion workshop- all for free! There will be plenty of chance to dance too, for those that way inclined, as besides the percussion we will be controlling the evening's playlist!
The cafe is open only to us, so under 18's are welcome, and will close at midnight.
Here is a link to the cafe's website: www.blendnottingham.co.uk
