About this Activity
Combine the techniques of a martial art with the spirit and music of Afro-Brazilian dance, throw in a healthy dose of gymnastics, and you have Capoeira: an Afro-Brazilian martial art disguised as a dance. In a safe, supportive environment, you’ll learn to put together the sweeping, athletic kicks, spins and turns that are as exhilarating to practice as for spectators to watch. As you train, you will gain unbelievable flexibility, strength and endurance. But this isn’t just a workout -- it’s a full cultural experience. Play traditional instruments and learn Portuguese through songs and commands. If you’re looking to get in the best shape of your life, and have fun doing it, this is the place for you.
