Capoeira studio celebrates 1 year in the Bronx
An Afro-Brazilian martial arts studio is celebrating one year in the Bronx.
The ACBX Studio in Fieldston celebrated its one-year anniversary over the weekend with a potluck.
Participants performed several Afro-Brazilian dances including Capoeira.
Capoeira combines elements of dance, acrobatics and music and was developed in Brazil at the beginning of the 16th century.
Executive Director Jennifer Sanchez says she has been working in the Kingsbridge and Riverdale communities for the last seven years before opening ACBX.
The studio offers classes for adults and children.
