What is Capoeira anyway?
Geez, it's so hard to explain! It's part dance- but not like pirouettes and unlike any other dance form we have studied- it's more like a flow and communication with another player of Capoeira and influenced by the beat of the drum and tempo of the birimbau. It's also part acrobatics- but no acro skills are required- one sneaks, slithers and dodges out of the way the "opponent's" approach, and if one chooses to escape via a cartwheeel, one uses those moves too. And it's part Martial Art- but there is a flow and joy that is unique to this form. It was developed by slaves who trained and practiced to escape oppression. They hid their illegal training in joyful music-making and dance. Capoeira is a dance of liberation, celebration and connection- connection to one's self, the community and rhythm/music. And it's a FANTASTIC way to get in shape
