LSE Capoeira Society
Give us an overview of the Capoeira Society
The Capoeira Association Aprendendo Angola has been running regular Capoeira Angola training sessions 3 times a week at the LSE since 2007. Our group is known for being very open and friendly; we welcome anyone who is interested in exploring and researching this art form with us, from complete beginners to experienced students, across all age groups. We see Capoeira not only as an exercise in skills, but as an opportunity for creating communities of people with a common passion for Afro-Brazilian music, history, dance.
