Roda de Rua (A Roda in the street) is an event run in Sydney by Capoeira Aruanda. In the spirit of the street rodas of Brazil the group invited friends from all capoeira groups to the Roda, anybody who wished to attend was welcomed.
It was a great success, thanks to both the students of Capoeira Aruanda who have continued the tradition and to all the guests who contribute their positive energy to the Roda.
In addition to the Roda, Capoeira Aruanda students participate in training and workshops before the Roda and generally follow it with a swim and BBQ at the beach.
The first Roda de Rua series was run in the summer of 2007. It was a series of 6 consecutive Sunday Rodas all held in different outdoor locations. Since then it has evolved and found its permanent home to be the park of Coogee Beach.
