Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form. Slaves living on Brazilian plantations who were not allowed to openly practice traditional forms of self-defense developed an ingenious method of disguising their training by combining it with dance-like movements, singing and the rhythms of primitive instruments. The result is a “game” of fluid ground movements, spinning kicks and daring acrobatics set to the energetic clapping and singing of spectators.
Capoeira has evolved over centuries into an exciting combination of martial arts, dance, acrobatics and live music. Brazilian Capoeira offers classes in the art for adults, teens, and children beginning at age four.
