Oi! We’re ilê de palmares, a capoeira group located In New York City. Take a look around & don’t be shy.

ilê de palmares (e·lay / g / pal·mar·es) means “house of the Palmares” and was founded by Contra-Mestre Omi and Professor Caimãn.

Capoeira (cap·o·ei·ra) is an Afro-Brazilian martial art disguised as a dance. It was created in the 16th century by enslaved Africans in Brazil who used it to liberate themselves.

We hold classes almost every day of the week at a variety of locations throughout New York City, for both adults and children. Beginners and advanced students are welcomed.

Schedule

Classes are held in Long Island City, Queens; Williamsburg, Brooklyn; Lower East Side, Manhattan; and Flushing, Queens.
