• Switzerland

The first lessons began in 1996 at the former Venthône football ground. After several years of informal lessons, the group has structured itself into an association thanks to a group of motivated young people on the shores of Lake Géronde in 2000. Since then, with around forty members, Capoeira dos Alpes has broadcast its courses with more than 1,200 children, teens and adults (workshops, training, extracurricular and school courses, etc.). The Capoeira dos Alpes group has succeeded in bringing a bit of Brazilian culture to the heart of the Alps and to introduce this art to the people of the Valais.
