Grupo de Capoeira Dendê

Grupo de Capoeira Dendê was founded in Halifax in 2005 by Mestre Azeitona and Professora Paula. Their goal (along with their friend Mestre Fabinho Cuencas of Dendê do Recife - Ottawa) has always been to further develop capoeira in Canada and to emphasize the style and culture of their home: the province of Pernambuco in Brazil's Northeast. Since 2007 the group’s work in Halifax has been led by their long-time student Cacuete (Ross Burns), now a veteran of more than 13 years teaching capoeira. ​ In the fall of 2020 Dendê Halifax has started again running weekly classes for students of all levels.
