Youth Capoeira classes are open to students of all levels, and beginners are welcome.
Classes build physical, artistic, and social skills. Working independently, in partners, and as a group, students learn basic Capoeira movements, and how to “play” Capoeira. Students use the movements in improvisational games with each other.
Classes have a single monthly fee and students can attend all both or 1 weekly class. Instruction covers physical elements of the arts including acrobatic and dynamic movement, self-defense, and improvisation and performance concepts. Youth learn historical and cultural information, receive hands-on training on instruments, and learn songs in Portuguese.
