Spring Quarter

Our regular practices will be held on Mondays from 5:30 to 7:30 in the MultiPurpose Room of the Viking Union: bring shoes and pants you feel comfortable moving in, and come prepared to spend at least some time being upside down!

All experience levels are always welcome!

We are also meeting on Saturdays (including tomorrow) specifically to focus on learning the music and songs associated with capoeira. Given the forecast of rain for tomorrow, we will meet at the Whatcom Peace and Justice Center, at the north end of downtown: the address is 1220 Bay Street, close to the intersection of Bay and Holly Street. we will have (some) instruments to provide.

A journalist from the Western Front came to see our Saturday music practices, and took some pictures. Here's one:

A few dates to look out for: 

-we will be having a roda at the African - Caribbean culture night on Saturday April 27th 

- On Sunday May 5th, Community to Community is sponsoring a Farmworker march that will end at Maritime Heritage Park. Participate, and perhaps join in a roda at the march's end!

- We will be having a performance/roda at the WWU event Cabaret on May 18th

-The Folklife festival in Seattle will be memorial day weekend. there will be a roda there with members of FICA and other capoeiristas!
