Capoeira is a Brazilian Martial Art. Capoeira is a mixture of non-contact martial arts, dance and music. It is played as a game.
This class introduces kids, youth and adults to Capoeira, a Brazilian Martial Art. Capoeira is a mixture of non-contact martial arts, dance and music, and it is played as a game. Students learn about Brazilian culture and history while working on flexibility, coordination, balance and strength. Capoeira classes are dynamic and joyful, with upbeat Brazilian music accompanying movements. Students are exposed to the Portuguese language through the names of the movements and the call-and-response songs that they learn to sing. Capoeira encourages artistic expression by allowing “open rodas” (freeplay sessions) in which students can “play” Capoeira with each other using both choreographed sequences from class and by improvising their own movements.
