Default Capoeira in the UAE

I've managed to find one school there anyone know what it is like? or knows someone that has taken a class there? are there any other options?

just want to keep training whilst i'm out there but i'm being trained by one of the UK's best professors at the moment and can't stand the thought of everyone else progressing more than me whilst i'm away

if I remember rightly it is martial arts disguised as dancing. The slaves in the sugar plantations did it that way so their owners wouldnt know it was a martial art!
