Summer Series - Dendê Do Recife - Capoeira Dance

Presented by: Shenkman Arts Centre Presents in partnership with the Heart of Orléans BIA

Join us for a weekly dose of fun at our summer lunchtime series!

Capoeira is a Brazilian art form that combines and embodies elements of combat, music, acrobatics and much more. Capoeira is an art form for anyone and everyone.

Centro Cultural Dendê Do Recife opened its doors in 2013 in Ottawa's Sandy Hill neighbourhood. It is home to Ottawa's oldest and largest capoeira group launched by Mestre Fabinho (Fabio Nascimento) in 1999. The centre offers classes for adults and children of all levels in capoeira, Brazilian dance and music, specialized fitness and various events.

These free concerts will take place every Thursday in July and August. The performances will present a wonderfully diverse selection of local artists and performers.
