Capoeira Exchange 5.0!

Start your new year with some good axe. Don't be late cause this one is a little shorter than usual, but we are grateful the metro is co-sponering this event.  

Everyone welcome, No Uniforms. 

Metro Art Presents showcases an exciting array of free arts and cultural programs at historic LA Union Station....

In celebration of the New Year, we’re excited to present Capoeira Exchange, bringing together the capoeira community to play, share and exchange knowledge of this beautiful Afro-Brazilian art form with the public. 

Capoeira is a martial art form incorporating dance, song, music and oral history. At Union Station, Muito Tempo and Saracuru will facilitate a “roda,” a circle formed by capoeiristas and musicians.

Join us for an afternoon of movement and music as we explore this beautiful, entrancing practice. Audience participation is welcome! Short, informal capoeira instruction will be offered at the beginning of the event. 

11:30am - 12:00pm -- instruction
12:00pm - 2:00pm -- open roda

This free, all ages event will take place outside in Union Station’s South Patio.
