Our school program has been performing successfully in Canberra ACT since 2009.
Between 2009 and 2014 we have been running classes in both private and public schools in Canberra and Queanbeyan NSW as part of the Australian Government's Active After School Program (Sports Commission).
When the government program ended in 2014, we continued to offer Capoeira classes in schools in Canberra and currently work with Telopea Park school, one of the references for public and by-lingual schools. Here we run capoeira classes for primary and preschool year with the mission to offer a playful, multicultural, alternative and transformative activity capable to contribute to children development through historical context, movements and musicality.
