FOR OUR OUT OF TOWN VISITORS: we are thrilled to have so many of you at our event every year. It's a great opportunity for our LA Capoeira community to connect with capoeiristas from elsewhere! But because so many of you attend, we are unable to ensure airport rides for everyone. Our transportation committee can only guarantee airport pick ups and drop offs for professors and above. We hope you understand. There is however easy and affordable access to Lyft and Uber from LAX! Regarding housing, we will try very hard to provide it for everyone, but if you are coming with a large group, we highly recommend you get an Air BnB. Look in the Culver City, Mid-City, West LA, West Hollywood, Mid-Wilshire, Fairfax District, Ladera Heights and surrounding areas. Let us know if you need help evaluating the Air BnB location you are looking at! We can let you know if its a good choice!

What is Balão
Balão translates literally to balloon with the plural being Balões.
However, that is not what we ususally think of when we refer to a Balão in the capoeira context.

In the capoeira context, a balão, of which there are various, is a type of partner throw that involves acrobatic skills to be developed by both partners that participate in the skill. Mestre Bimba added various balões to his capoeira regional.
He also a sequence of balões that are known as the 'cintura desprezada’ sequence which is a series of ‘balões acinturados’, that graduated students perform while the rhythm of Iúna is played on the berimbau.
