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.
