  • Core Class - Tuesday, May 24th, 10am

    RSVP

    Tuesday, May 24th, 10 am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

Early in her career while dancing with Gerri Houlihan, Kristin discovered a love of site work alongside choreographers Dale Andree and Heidi Duckler, which led to performances in various sites, including avocado groves, restaurants, galleries, hotels, and any water resource imaginable. Kristin’s long-time relationship with Andree led her to assist in the operations of Andree’s National Water Dance, which first started as the Florida Waterways Dance Project in 2011. Kristin has worked as rehearsal assistant for many visiting artists at the University of Florida and Emory University and worked as rehearsal director for Core Dance in Atlanta. Kristin teaches varying levels of Contemporary Modern, Movement Improvisation, and co-teaches Contact Improvisation at Emory University with her husband, Greg Catellier, with whom she also collaborates in curious dance-making.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Tuesday, May 10th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Monday, April 25th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Amelia ReiserThe Mindful Body is an opportunity to cultivate mindfulness through an exploration of contemporary dance forms meshed with somatic practices. Mindfulness is so much more than attention alone, these practices invite us to discover a sense of connection with those around us, love, compassion, openness, creativity and playfulness. Everything is fleeting.Instructor Bio:Atlanta based movement artist Amelia Reiser, a native of Oklahoma, started training at a young age at The Classical Ballet Academy. Amelia went on to attend The University of Georgia (UGA) where she completed a BFA in Dance Performance in 2011. She spent time living in Ireland after graduation working with local artists through an internship with Athlone Arts and Heritage and collaborated on a dance film with visual artist Lesley Wingfiled titled Waters and the Wild (2011). Over her 25+ years of performing and creating, Amelia has had the opportunity to work with numerous dance-makers and artists including T Lang Dance, Nick Cave, Maryn Whitmore, Erik Thurmond, Christina Noel Reaves, Lesley Wingfield, Emily Christianson, Sara Santamaria, Greg Catellier, and George Staib. Her most recent work includes “Sheltered in Place” (2020) in collaboration with sculptor Sara Santamaria presented by Creatives Project and DriveThru ATL, and “pinion” (2021) a solo work in process shown at Excuse The Art presented by Fly on a Wall. Since 2013, Amelia has been a collaborative company member of Staibdance in Atlanta, GA. In addition to creating and performing, Amelia teaches yoga at Tough Love Yoga and Emory Healthcare, and is a trauma informed yoga and mindfulness teacher working with incarcerated youth through local nonprofit Centering Youth. An avid lover of dramatic skies, wild mountains, and trees, Amelia spends most spare moments in her garden, or escaping the city in search of adventure and wilderness.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Tuesday, April 19th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Tuesday, April 5th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

  • Core Class - Tuesday, March 22nd,10am

    RSVP

    Tuesday, March 22nd, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

Gestures can take the form of specific movements, shifts of attention, making the choice to coordinate one’s actions with others. Gesture can take the form of devising or activating improvisational scores. We are interested in how the syntax of gestures gives a performance an overall sensibility and ground for connections. We believe that it is just as important to attend to the intervals between gestures and the gestures themselves.

    RSVP

    Tuesday, March 8th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Tuesday, February 15th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff.

She received her MFA in Dance from Hollins University/ADF where she began her research of solo performance and character creation. Her character investigations led to an unfolding series of solos inspired by the lives of her grandmothers, Glenna and Dorothy, as well as aunts and great aunts named June, Helen, Diane, Constance and Nell. Many of these solos live in the repertoire of Sarasota Contemporary Dance in Florida. Early in her career while dancing with Gerri Houlihan, Kristin discovered a love of site work alongside choreographers Dale Andree and Heidi Duckler, which led to performances in various sites, including avocado groves, restaurants, galleries, hotels, and any water resource imaginable. Kristin’s long-time relationship with Andree led her to assist in the operations of Andree’s National Water Dance, which first started as the Florida Waterways Dance Project in 2011. Kristin has worked as rehearsal assistant for many visiting artists at the University of Florida and Emory University and worked as rehearsal director for Core Dance in Atlanta. Kristin teaches varying levels of Contemporary Modern, Movement Improvisation, and co-teaches Contact Improvisation at Emory University with her husband, Greg Catellier, with whom she also collaborates in curious dance-making.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Tuesday, February 1st, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

Early in her career while dancing with Gerri Houlihan, Kristin discovered a love of site work alongside choreographers Dale Andree and Heidi Duckler, which led to performances in various sites, including avocado groves, restaurants, galleries, hotels, and any water resource imaginable. Kristin’s long-time relationship with Andree led her to assist in the operations of Andree’s National Water Dance, which first started as the Florida Waterways Dance Project in 2011. Kristin has worked as rehearsal assistant for many visiting artists at the University of Florida and Emory University and worked as rehearsal director for Core Dance in Atlanta. Kristin teaches varying levels of Contemporary Modern, Movement Improvisation, and co-teaches Contact Improvisation at Emory University with her husband, Greg Catellier, with whom she also collaborates in curious dance-making.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Tuesday, January 18th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    *This class has been cancelled, please reference our website and social media for updates regarding rescheduling*Thursday, December 16th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Laith StevensonClass Description:In this course, we will flow through a series of movement-based offerings delivered throughout a span of time. Analog explores improvisation as a research tool that should be steeped in time. We will begin each duration with movement that engages the muscles, invites stretching, and heats our bodies. Then, we will move through an array of gestures, physical states, and movements ranging from known to unfamiliar, codified to uncertain, awkward to standard. Analog is a research lab that aims to serve it’s participants as an incubator for creative discovery. It emphasizes the use of longer durations of movement in hopes of pushing creative boundaries and expanding movement vocabularies. Throughout the course we will employ both abstract and literal interpretations of prompts. The culmination of our investigation together will layer concepts explored in the course into a movement score or phrase. Instructor Bio:Laith Stevenson (she/they) is a movement artist and published poet from rural Alabama. They attended Emory University, where they received their B.A in Political Science and Arabic. In addition to their primary studies, they maintained an active presence in both the Dance and Creative Writing programs. Here, they began their training in contemporary dance and movement. After graduating, they began creating work as a means of facilitating dialogues on identity politics and interpersonal relationships. Currently, Laith resides in Atlanta where they work with Core Dance and Okwae Miller & Artists. Laith has worked and studied with other notable artists such as Amanda K. Miller, George Staib, Greg Catellier, Jillian Mitchell, John McFall, Kathleen Wessel, Kieth Hennessy, Noelle Kayser, Niv Sheinfeld, Oren Laor, and Sidra Bell.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel.

She received her MFA in Dance from Hollins University/ADF where she began her research of solo performance and character creation.

    Tuesday, December 7th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Tuesday, November 23rd, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Tuesday, November 2nd, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Wednesday, September 29th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Kristin O'NealInstructor Bio:Kristin O’Neal is a performer, teacher and choreographer residing in Atlanta, GA. She received her MFA in Dance from Hollins University/ADF where she began her research of solo performance and character creation. Her character investigations led to an unfolding series of solos inspired by the lives of her grandmothers, Glenna and Dorothy, as well as aunts and great aunts named June, Helen, Diane, Constance and Nell. Many of these solos live in the repertoire of Sarasota Contemporary Dance in Florida. Early in her career while dancing with Gerri Houlihan, Kristin discovered a love of site work alongside choreographers Dale Andree and Heidi Duckler, which led to performances in various sites, including avocado groves, restaurants, galleries, hotels, and any water resource imaginable. Kristin’s long-time relationship with Andree led her to assist in the operations of Andree’s National Water Dance, which first started as the Florida Waterways Dance Project in 2011. Kristin has worked as rehearsal assistant for many visiting artists at the University of Florida and Emory University and worked as rehearsal director for Core Dance in Atlanta. Kristin teaches varying levels of Contemporary Modern, Movement Improvisation, and co-teaches Contact Improvisation at Emory University with her husband, Greg Catellier, with whom she also collaborates in curious dance-making.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

  • Core Class - Tuesday, September 28, 10am

    RSVP

    Tuesday, September 28th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Mestre FranInstructor Bio:Mestre Fran was born on November 7, 1964 in the city of Fortaleza, Ceará, Brasil. He started practicing Capoeira at the age of 10, in São Paulo, Brasil with Ronaldo Luis de Lima, better known as Mestre Bradesco of Grupo de Capoeira Conceição da Praia. Mestre Bradesco was responsible for creating a capoeirista strong in every aspect of the fundamentals. In November of 1982, at the age of 18, he arrived in Londrina, Brasil with the dream to disseminate the art of Capoeira to the southern regions of Brasil.After many years of hard work in Londrina, Sara, Mestre Fran’s wife and a professor, suggested a trip to Salvador, Bahia. In Salvador he met Dona Alice, Mestre Pastinha’s widow and many other capoeira Mestres like Bobó, Caiçara, and Ezequiel. These old “capoeiristas baianos” (capoeiristas from Bahia) showed Mestre Fran the essence of Capoeira and the art of Maculelê. The beat of the drums and the vibration of the beautiful dance-fight impacted Mestre Fran deeply. Upon his return to Londrina, he decided to take all that he learned in Bahia and create his own group. On November 5, 1991 in the city of Londrina, Brasil, Mestre Fran founded the Associaçao Cultural de Capoeira Maculelê or Capoeira Maculelê Cultural Association. Mestre Fran furthered awareness of Capoeira and his group in Londrina by performing as a part of cultural shows and establishing a program to help impoverished children escape the dangers of the streets. His efforts can be seen in his two successful academies around the city as well as in his academies throughout the world.Mestre Fran’s plans were formulating well in Londrina but his dreams of spreading Capoeira could not rest. This time, his sights were set on the United States. In December 2002, with the help of Steven Alphabet – former Athletic Director for Georgia State University, Mestre Fran became the first Capoeira Mestre in Atlanta, Georgia. In 2003, Mestre Fran was hired by Emory University to start the first capoeira program with students and Emory staff. Here in Atlanta, Mestre Fran has orchestrated Capoeira batizados (or graduations) and has performed at numerous cultural festivals in Downtown Decatur, Piedmont Park, Centennial Olympic Park, Underground Atlanta, Emory University, Georgia State University, Georgia Aquarium, State Farm Arena and many more. He has also taught workshops all over the United States (Emory, Georgia State, UT, Harvard, UGA) Brazil, Europe, Latin America and Asia.Since 1982, Mestre Fran and Capoeira Maculelê have worked to promote an organization that values all dimensions of the human being, including the physical, moral, and spiritual. He has focused on awakening the talents of his students, elevating the awareness of society, and encouraging the practice of Capoeira as an art, fight, and a means of social, cultural, and athletic integration. Mestre Fran is constantly researching capoeira and improving his style. He teaches workshops and seminars and attends batizados in Brazil, USA, Europe and throughout the world. He has become eminently respected in Brazil, USA and in the worldwide capoeira community for his contributions to the art and communities.Today, anyone would agree that Mestre Fran has succeeded in these endeavors. He has taken his passion and shared it with hundreds, maybe thousands, of people all over the world and, unintentionally, Mestre Fran has created a reputation as one of the greatest Capoeira Mestres and maintains international recognition for his accomplishments in the field and teaches regularly throughout Brazil, North America, Europe, Asia, and Colombia.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.

    Wednesday, September 15th, 10am to 11:30 amClass instructor: Kristin O'NealInstructor Bio:Kristin O’Neal is a performer, teacher and choreographer residing in Atlanta, GA. She received her MFA in Dance from Hollins University/ADF where she began her research of solo performance and character creation. Her character investigations led to an unfolding series of solos inspired by the lives of her grandmothers, Glenna and Dorothy, as well as aunts and great aunts named June, Helen, Diane, Constance and Nell. Many of these solos live in the repertoire of Sarasota Contemporary Dance in Florida. Early in her career while dancing with Gerri Houlihan, Kristin discovered a love of site work alongside choreographers Dale Andree and Heidi Duckler, which led to performances in various sites, including avocado groves, restaurants, galleries, hotels, and any water resource imaginable. Kristin’s long-time relationship with Andree led her to assist in the operations of Andree’s National Water Dance, which first started as the Florida Waterways Dance Project in 2011. Kristin has worked as rehearsal assistant for many visiting artists at the University of Florida and Emory University and worked as rehearsal director for Core Dance in Atlanta. Kristin teaches varying levels of Contemporary Modern, Movement Improvisation, and co-teaches Contact Improvisation at Emory University with her husband, Greg Catellier, with whom she also collaborates in curious dance-making.-------------------------------------------------------------------------Core Dance opens its doors to the public every Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, and Friday morning.
