Capoeira Brazilian Pelorinho da Topazio Las Vegas, instructed by Wellington Lima (Palhacada), will be hosting the it’s first Batizado this May. After about a year of founding, this group is now able to have it’s first Batizado/Graduation for its students as well as offering workshops to the public in Capoeira, Afro-Brazilian dance, Samba and more as well as experiencing the food, drinks, music and energy of Brazil. This event will enlighten the community and give the youth an outlet for exploration, fun, and discipline and also help the adults escape! The funds needed are for the transport and accommodations of the visiting masters and instructors, for the food/drinks, event T-shirst/uniforms, instruments for the participants and overall marketing tools to get the word around town.
