 Our 22nd Annual Graduation Event Celebration
This email is to inform students and parents about the details of our 22nd annual student graduation (aka “Batizado”).  The ceremony will take place on Saturday, October 3rd from 11:00am-2:30pm at the Orlando Museum of Art.  There will be workshops, tests and other events leading up the main event.

Batizado Overview

So what exactly is a "batizado," anyway? 

When joining a Capoeira group, you or your child will eventually have a chance to take part in a batizado, the annual graduation ceremony. The batizado is essentially a belt test event and ceremony, which involves playing a game of Capoeira with one or more mestres or high-level capoeiristas whom graduate the student to their next cordel.

This is spectacular ceremony brings in hundreds of spectators, students, and masters from United States and Brazil for this one-of-a-kind event. The batizado is an exciting day for you and/or your child as he or she child demonstrate his/her efforts of the past year in an exciting day full of entertainment and excitement!

Each year, Mestre Lazaro does his best to make the batizado a fun and exciting event for all participants.  Many expenses are included in making this event so special.  These expenses typically include: renting a space for the event, purchasing travel and hotel accommodations for visiting Mestres from Brazil and the US, paying visiting Mestres to teach workshops, new uniforms and cordels, and other expenses.  Because of the many expenses involved in the batizado, there is a fee for all participating students.
