2014 - the year of change for GUC

Happy 2014 everyone!

Here we are for a brand new year... As announced before the holidays, GUC is facing some interesting changes. The studio at Queen and Spadina has closed and we are unable to provide classes for now.

We are currently looking for a new space to train (martial arts academy, dance studio, gym, ...). If you have any contacts, please let us know.

In the meantime, there are different capoeira families ready to welcome you in Toronto. We hope you can still train and lose the weight gained during the holidays :)

We look forward to seeing you again soon.

Axé!

Outdoor rodas and park sessions will be scheduled instead (hoping that the sun ends up its strike). Stay tuned!

Today 23 preschoolers at Peekaboo Child Care Centre partook in a capoeira workshop. Activities included practices in rhythm (including speed and timing), introductions to the instruments, basic Portuguese words such as the "roda", and they even learned a song! To top off the session, the mini-capoeiristas learned the first steps towards the "au"! Good job kids!

Hopefully this will be the first of many sessions like these! Who knows... Perhaps a children's class someday!
