Berlin's academy for traditional and contemporary Brazilian dance culture celebrates its 10th anniversary.
On July 19 in 1997, Mestre Rosalvo dos Santos and Contra-Mestre Susy Oestereicher founded Europe's first school for Capoeira Angola and Afro-Brazilian Dance. It has always been the goal to pass on both these expressions of traditional Brazilian culture in an authentic environment. This idea had begun taking shape with the arrival of Mestre Rosalvo in 1989, who was the first angoleiro to come to Europe.
