About

Our Dallas capoeira group is a branch of Os Malandros de Mestre Touro founded by Mestre Preto Velho in San Diego. Mestre Preto Velho started the group as a means to empower his community through the art of capoeira. For us, capoeira is more than just a means of self-defense. Capoeira is a method for cultural connection. The Dallas branch of Os Malandros group has been holding capoeira classes in the Dallas area since 1997 and is open to everyone interested in growing in the art of capoeira.

Performances are not a routine focus of our group. However, we hold demonstrations upon request at various public functions such as those related to culture, fitness or youth development. If you are interested in arranging a capoeira demonstration in the Dallas area or a special class for your organization, please contact us at info@dallasmalandros.com or 214-444-3692.
