QUEENS CAPOEIRA OUTREACH PROJECT
Our Queens Capoeira Outreach Project is housed in Flushing Town Hall (137-35 Northern Blvd) in the Flushing Queens community. Classes are currently available on Mondays for children (6:30-7:30pm) and adults (7:30-9pm). In addition, we are partnering with other organizations to bring Capoeira to other parts of Queens where Capoeira is not present like Far Rockaway. Please contact the Capoeira Center at 646-330-4858 or 718-496-1730 to see how you can bring Capoeira to your community!
