International Capoeira Festival Posted by on Aug 7, 2008 in Entertainment

Though capoeira, a Brazilian dance form that mixes martial arts and movement, is most prominent in Salvador, Bahia, it is now practiced all over Brazil. In fact, this August, Brazil’s big international capoeira festival is being held in a less likely place: Belo Horizonte, the capital of Minas Gerais. From the 4th to the 10th, the city will host capoeira workshops, performances, competitions, conferences, and classes. Over 2,000 Brazilians will participate, as well as 500 foreigners from the U.S., Europe, and Japan.
