Wednesday classes are canceled

Due to the rapid spread of the novel coronavirus, Capoeira Nagô Milwaukee is canceling Wednesday 8pm classes until further notice.

Saturday 10am classes will continue as regularly scheduled, as we’re better able to control and clean the space before and after class.

You should NOT come to class if you are sick, or if you’ve come into contact with someone who has COVID-19.

While we in many ways feel the cost of making this change, doing what we can to slow the spread of this pandemic in and around Milwaukee will save lives. It is therefore more than worth it.


FREE Capoeira Beginner’s Class (3/7)

Come discover the unique Afro-Brazilian martial art of capoeira!! We’ll cover basic kicks, dodges and movements to get you flowing to the beautiful groove of the berimbau.

Our next Capoeira Beginner’s Class will take place this Saturday, March 7th at 10am @ Daync Studio (910 E Hamilton St., on Milwaukee’s East Side).

This is an all levels workshop, but you will get the most out of it if your capoeira fundamentals are already solid, so you should have a few months of capoeira under your belt already.
