This year’s Batizado (Graduation Ceremony) has been an inspirational and thoroughly enjoyable experience.

The event was an astounding success. The workshops have provided insightful and memorable experiences, many of our Students Graduated and we concluded the event with another spectacular Afro-Brazilian Show!

We would like to thank all of those who participated and especially thank those who helped throughout the event. 

The Batizado would not have been what it was without the spirit and efforts of those involved! 

Next year’s Batizado marks 10 Years of Professor Marcus Cabeca and his School… so get ready, it’s going to be a big celebration!
