Classes & Workshops

Kids/Adults Capoeira (capo’era) class is a Brazilian blend of dance, martial arts, gymnastics, music and games that encourages physical, social, emotional, and creative development.
The flow of kicks, escapes, cartwheels, and handstands set to the powerful rhythm of music are the perfect remedies to keep active and fit, while enjoying a cultural experience.
In addition to these benefits, it provides a fun and environment where students work their body and mind to improve their physical fitness and state of well- being.
Using instruments unique only to Capoeira, kids and adults will learn to play and sing songs in Portuguese.
