Capoeira (Brazilian Dancing Martial Arts) – for ages 5–9
Capoeira (pronounced cap-o-wed-a) is an
art of self-defense that is hidden in dance
and played as a game inside a circle with live music and songs. Capoeira has a rich and important history and is enjoyed as a beautiful “dance.” It develops strong, agile muscles, brings people together and invites people to express themselves. It provides health benefits, enhances self-esteem, reduces stress and
was created to build community. The Capoeira community continues to grow, as it spreads across the world. It is a barefoot class. Wear loose clothes and bring water.
