Puerto Vallarta • Riviera Nayarit 

Capoeira Art Festival in San Pancho

Juan Rivera Martinez - Capoeira Newsletter
March 15, 2012

In Riviera Nayarit magic is our luxury, and it is this very magic what will bring the great masters of Capoeira for the second consecutive year.

These professionals will offer workshops, batizado ceremonies, and the culture of this popular and rhythmic martial art in San Francisco (San Pancho), Nayarit on March 22 - 25.

In addition to the daily activities, on Sunday, March 25, there will be an exhibition in Bodega 2 at 4:00 pm.

This year, the instructors at the Festival will be Mestranda Marcia Cigarra and Mestre Alma de Gato.

The event will assemble approximately 300 participants from all over the country, and will seek to create links to share the knowledge among all the members of Abadá Capoeira in Mexico, as well as to strengthen the environmental awareness and reaffirm the presence of Abadá Capoeria, which already has over 100 local students.

The rodas, the batizado ceremonies and workshops offered by the guest instructors will be directed to the diffusion of Capoeira Art as the main activity of this event, while a series of workshops for organic gardening will develop a greater environmental awareness among the audience.

There will be an intensive course of technical training with renowned teachers worldwide during this four day event where there will be classes, workshops, conferences, ecological campaigns and the graduation ceremony.

The objectives of this event are:
• To disseminate the art of Capoeira in the state of Nayarit.
• To strengthen sporting and artistic activities as part of a healthy human development.
• To promote a healthy tourism in the State of Nayarit.
• To raise the technical and theoretical level of practitioners in Nayarit.
• To provide knowledge of renowned teachers worldwide.
• To integrate practitioners of all ages and all social classes.
• To promote San Francisco, Nayarit, as an artistic and cultural destination.

The Convention and Visitors Bureau of Riviera Nayarit emphasizes the importance of sports tourism as an asset in attracting tourists to this destination, and commends the hard work of the organizers to assist in the promotion of Mexico's Pacific Treasure.
