Capoeira

What to expect
  • Learn the core movements of Capoeira, the Brazilian combative dance
  • Improve strength and conditioning through this high-intensity workout
  • Workout every part of your body through constant movement and basic acrobatics
  • No experience necessary
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.

Note: You must be at least 14 years or older to attend this class.
