Prvi rođendan kluba Capoeira Senzala Niš

Ovaj događaj organizovali smo u čast jednogodišnjeg postojanja kluba Capoeira Senzala Niš. Seminar je održan u Osnovnoj školi “Dositej Obradović” od 08.-10.12.2017. u Nišu. Ovo je prvi put da se kapoera razvija i na jugu Srbije i bilo nam je drago da vidimo toliko ljudi koji su bili voljni da slave sa nama. 68 more words
