The Capoeira Batizado, a motivation that inspires!
Gatherings are made special when they bring together friends, family and loved ones. These celebrations are made magical when you add to that list well-wishers who are there to encourage and support you as you demonstrate a new skill, accomplishment or achievement. Like the holiday season, carrying with it enchantment and wonder, the capoeira Batizado fuses all those elements into a wonderful festival that holds captive the imagination of all who attend. With enthusiasm and anticipation, the community sits transfixed as the magic of the Batizado unfolds. The constancy of the bateria, or rhythmic musical accompaniment, captivates the crowd as the onlookers’ admire the dynamic physical performance unfolding. This expression of celebration and the joy and community that develops and grows at each Batizado creates a feel good lifelong connection within the capoeira community that endures.
