Also, forgive us if you are a Mestre, CM or Instructor for not receiving a more proper invitation and if any of you receives this message more than once as we are trying to consolidate and organize different e-mail lists. The most important thing was to get the message out.

If you have questions or concerns feel free to call us at 773.227.8879 or e-mail us at info@quilombocenter.org.

Respectfully,
Treinel Beto
FICA Chicago
