Description

Come move and groove the Brazilian way! Capoeira combines martial arts, music, dance and acrobatics to help students gain coordination, focus, agility, flexibility, teamwork and strength. In this class we will also learn how to play traditional Brazilian instruments and sing in Portuguese, but don’t worry, this is a judgment-free zone! The psychological and developmental benefits that arise from cooperation, respect, discipline, and tolerance are essential to the practice of this art form. Sessions focus on developing physical and sensory awareness through movement, tumbling, and sensory activities.
