Born on March 23, 1987 in Alajuela, Costa Rica. She began training capoeira in 2002 at the age of 16 under Mestre Delei "Kacula". After traveling to Brasil in 2003 she was convinced that the art of Capoeira was her calling. In 2005 she moved to Miami, FL to begin teaching Capoeira along with her husband, Professor Cavalo. She has taught capoeira classes throughout South Florida in such places as:Miami Dade community College (Downtown Miami, FL)
In 2009 she received 2nd Place in an International Capoeira Competition (Capoeira Maculele - Mundial 2009). In 2010 she reached the rank of "Instrutora" in Londrina, Brazil. A very high ranking in Capoeira. Then again in 2011 she received a 2nd Place trophy in the absolute division in the same competition (Capoeira Maculele - Mundial 2011). A mother of three, Instrutora Venus is an inspiration to many female (and male) students. She has dedicated her life to the art and is still barely scratching the surface of her potential!
