Why did you get interested in Capoeira and/or Samba?

I happen to take a Capoeira class and fell in love in February. When I was young my father was into Taekwondo and encouraged my brother and I to practice. I got up to a green belt before my mother pulled me out and forced me into ballet. Over the years I have gotten into Budokon (a form of martial arts and yoga) and found that Capoeira merged me two loves - dancing and martial arts. I look for an opportunity to learn more through this MeetUp group.


My name is Vanessa Ferragut and I'm a Cuban American. I have started taking Capoeira and am absolutely hooked! I would like to learn more about the art, culture and people. I thought this would be a good place to start!
