The debates are a couple hours long, enough time for each candidate to explain why he/she is the best fit for this position, and an opportunity for them to share some of their goals and visions with students.

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art, which was created in the 16th century by the slaves brought from Africa to Brazil to work in plantations. At its essence, it was born as a fight for freedom, slaves would gather after the long days of work and play music, sing, and dance. However, hidden behind different movements, they were actually training to become strong, defend from the beatings of the masters and eventually fight for freedom. It developed over the years in Brazil and first was illegal as it was used by criminals in the streets, but in the 20th century it was systematized by masters and became a national sport of Brazil. Presently, it has spread all over the world and is a dynamic, fun, multidimensional martial art.  Everyone is welcome to come and try it!
