Capoeira: Wednesdays

Session: April 15-May 27
Ages: 5-7, 3:45-4:30pm 
Ages: 8-12, 4:30-5:30pm

Drop-in fee: $20/class 

Capoeira (pronounced ka-poo-eyh-da) is an AFRO-Brazilian martial art form that incorporated 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 other players who create rhythm for the game by clapping, singing and playing traditional handmade instruments. The two "capoeiristas" play a game together using capoeira movements, camouflaging self-defense kicks with playful acrobatics and dance-like moves spontaneously creating a strategy to fool the other player and perhaps work together to build a beautiful, harmonic and naturally flowing game. Please visit their website for more information

The class will teach basic capoeira techniques and music including traditional instruments and songs in Portuguese. We use games and exercises that develop physical, social and mental capacities. All youth classes are mixed level. Ages 5-7 classes emphasize cooperation, spatial awareness, and basic physical skills. Students begin to learn acrobatics movements and improve balance and coordination of the arms and legs. Ages 8-12 classes focus on skill building, leadership, strength, agility, flexibility, and endurance. Students begin to learn more complex acrobatics and sequences.
