Contra Mestre Alex (Carrapeta) is from Mestre Marrom’s school of capoeira in Rio de Janeiro. He has been an important contributor to the UK capoeira scene since his arrival here six years ago. Alex plays capoeira with much subtlety, grace and technical skill and has a generosity of spirit that comes across strongly through his teaching. We are very much looking forward to hosting a class with him in Nottingham for a second time.
