Posted in Updates! with tags , , , , , on January 19, 2009 by testcapo

We have a tendency to hype our capoeira events really early and this time we might break records. In August we will be hosting our 3rd International Encontro along with our annual batizado. This event was hosted in Sweden last year and was a HUGE success. Omulu Guanabara Capoeirstas from all over Europe, Brazil and the US came out to represent. This year we are looking to do the same and make it even bigger. We already have people from all over committing to flying out for this event and it is up to us to get ready to represent again. This means that everybody needs to up the intensity and start setting goals.

Dates: August 17th – 22nd
Workshops: 2 workshops a day
Package Price: $225 for all workshops

2009 is finally here, and to start the new year off right, the Aceituno Arts Cooperative is hosting our first ever $5 Beginner Sunday on January 11th!

What is Beginner Sunday?

The Aceituno Arts Cooperative offers a wide variety of classes in dance, martial arts, and music for all different levels of ability and experience, and on January 11th, we’ll be hosting a special event just for new students. Each of our instructors will be teaching a special class specifically geared toward first-timers; classes that are fun, challenging, and most importantly, accessible to everyone. Whether you’re looking to try something new, to improve your existing skills, or just to work off a few of those extra slices of pie you ate over the holidays, Beginner Sunday has something for everyone!

How much will Beginner Sunday cost?

For just $5, you can take as many of our classes as you like!

I’m already a student at Aceituno Arts. Should I come to Beginner Sunday?

Of course! This is your opportunity to share your favorite classes with your friends, or to try out some of the other classes offered at the AAC.

What time do classes start?

Beginning Capoeira 10:30-11:30
Capoeira Music 11:30-12:30
BioDanza 1:00-2:30
Jeet Kune Do 2:30-3:30
Pole Dancing from 4:00-5:30

Where is the Aceituno Arts Cooperative?

Our address is 2141 Mission St, suite #200, between 17th and 18th, just one block south of the 16th St. BART station.

Anything else I should know?

Just that Beginner Sunday is going to be a ton of fun, and you should bring your friends. As always, the latest updates, monthly schedules, and special events can be found on our website,, and any questions can be sent to us

Hey, Beginner Sunday sounds great, but unfortunately this year I’ve resolved to not make new friends, to stay out of shape, to never try anything new, and to just be super lame.

Well, good luck with that. For everyone else, we’ll see you on January 11th!
