During this class, you'll develop greater strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, rhythm, and agility as you practice kicks, ducks, spins, and other basic Capoeira moves. Engage in sequences with a partner, and learn to play the flowing Capoeira game under the guidance of a professional. With an emphasis on the rhythm, music and culture of Capoeira, you'll partake in sing alongs, instrument playing, and fun Capoeira games. Enjoy a unique combination of martial arts, dance, self-defense, acrobatics, and music, all the while experiencing one of the most complete workouts and fitness programs you'll ever encounter!

    Capoeira

    (58)
    One doesn't typically relate dancing to fighting. But Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian fighting style originally developed as a means to disguise combat with twists and music, consists of a collection of constant movement. At PMT Dance Studio, you'll learn the basics, including the ginga, an essential movement that acts as a defensive rocking back and forth, attacking only when opportunity arises -- sounds like West Side Story, right? You will practice combining precise movements with an intense conditioning workout, forcing you to ginga your way to a healthier you, and maybe even replicate a few moves from West Side Story.

    Capoeira - Trial Class

    (14)
    What if dancing could settle disputes like in West Side Story? Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian dance, may not have originally existed as its contemporary combative form, but lately, it's converted. The style consists of constant movement, ginga, rocking back and forth for attack and defense purposes -- always keeping the opponent off target. You will learn to attack only when the opportunity arises and defend based on non-resistance (i.e. kick decisively and dodge contact). This high-intensity cardio and strength workout promises to kick you into shape but with rhythm. Ginga your way to a healthier you!
