I was a bit apprehensive about starting up Capoeria again after almost 20 years, but I'm so grateful that I did. Everybody in the club is so friendly and encouraging, no matter what level you're at. If you come you'll be welcomed into the fold... chances are you'll see me there... I can't see myself stopping anytime soon!! Between the music, the culture, the workout and the good vibes; You'll be dragging your friends along to have fun as well.

I have been training there for a couple of months. This is definitely a great place to play capoeira. The teacher is very passionate about the art and knowledgeable about all the aspects of it (music, history, technics etc.). The students go from beginner to advanced so no matter what your level is, you will have fun and learn. This is also a very open, free and kind atmosphere. The studio is accessible by train, tram or bus. Very close to Elsternwick train station.

These guys hire our space to run their classes. Damiano, the guy who runs it, is professional both in the way he runs the classes and with people he works with - us for example. We see students come in each class and often a few extra. They keep coming back so you know a good job is being done. This is definitely the place to go if you want to try out Capoeira.

Capoeira Classes for Beginners

Capoeira ACDP Australia aims to teach and promote Capoeira. Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian cultural practice, an art form that involves sport, body expression, music and tradition. Capoeira promotes mutual respect and inclusion between diverse individuals and communities. 
ACDP was founded in 1973 in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil) by Mestre Pantera. Since 2015, Estagiário Camaleão has been teaching Capoeira in the southern suburbs of Melbourne (classes are currently held at the Elwood Bowls Club).

Come and have a go! No experience is required.

  Minha mãe soube-me educar
  Pisando em terras aleias
  Eu piso bem devagar."
