    Capoeira Basics

    Capoeira (pronounced ka-poo-eyh-da) is an Afro-Brazilian martial art self-defense form that incorporates acrobatics, dance, percussion, and songs in a rhythmic dialogue of body, mind, and spirit. It is a communal game in which two opponents play each other inside a circle, formed by the other players who create rhythm for the game by clapping, singing and playing traditional instruments. During this class, you’ll learn basic Capoeira movements, such as camouflaging self-defense kicks with playful acrobatics and dance-like moves, in order to spontaneously create strategies to fool and catch your opponent off guard. Enjoy a fun alternative workout to your typical jog in a welcoming environment, and leave with practical knowledge of self-defense skills that may very well come in handy some day!

    Music of Capoeira & Macuelele

    Need to brush up on your berimbau skills? Or find out what a berimbau is? This music workshop is the perfect place to explore the inspirational and highly danceable music of capoeira and maculele. You’ll explore the rhythms and songs of these two popular Afro-Brazilian arts under the guidance of actual “Mestra” - the title given to top capoeiristas. Work on a range of basic to advanced skills with not only the berimbau, but other instruments common in capoeira, such as the atabaque and pandeiro. This class is the perfect chance if you’re a musician looking to explore a new form, or a capoeira dancer trying to better understand the musicality of your art. Or, you know, just a fun time to play some fly beats.
