What do you get when you cross dance, fighting, and stunning acrobatics? Sounds oddly like a famous musical. Not exactly. Originating as a means to disguise martial arts training in a fight for freedom, Capoeira is Brazil’s fast and graceful Afro-Brazilian art form. In this class, you’ll increase agility, balance, coordination, flexibility, muscle strength, posture, and overall cardiovascular health as you practice the fundamental movements of Capoeira, including how to dodge and attack. This energetic and culturally-rich workout is energized by live musicians so that you hardly notice just how intensively you are exercising. Can you ask for anything more from a workout?
Note: This is a free trial class for first time attendees only. As a courtesy to fellow participants, please provide at least 24 hour cancellation notice.
