Capoeira Nottingham founded in 2000, and became a Community Interest Company in 2010. We are part of the worldwide group Cordão de Ouro, meaning 'belt of gold'.
Our group is dedicated to the promotion of afro-Brazilian culture, and in particular Capoeira: its health, social and educational benefits. We run regular classes for adults and children in the Nottingham city centre, as well as working regularly in various school, college, university and community environments.
Our group is a diverse community, with everyone from young professionals, to students, and whole families engaging in what we do, from grandparent to grandchild.
The group holds regular workshops with world-class masters of Capoeira throughout the year.
