Capoeira is an African-Brazilian art form that “weaves fighting, music, dance, and rituals into a strategy by which people live, struggle, celebrate, and survive together.” Its roots are embedded in the African slavery history of Brazil in the 1600’s. The art arose out of injustice and oppression, as slaves were forced to learn how to defend themselves, disguising their techniques within the charade of a dance.
Classes incorporate the movements of capoeira, fundamentals of tumbling and acrobatics, music and rhythm, and partner work. Please dress in sweatpants and t-shirt.Classes are open to students of all levels.
For music classes: please bring your berimbau!
