Teen & Adult Capoeira (Ages 14 & Up)

Born almost 500 years ago among the African slaves of Brazil, Capoeira (Cop-Weh-Dah) is a cultural phenomenon unique to Brazil. Transcending dance, fighting and artistic expression, it is a uniquely holistic performance art, pushing practitioners to their physical, emotional, mental and spiritual limits.

There are two predominant styles of Capoeira. The originating style, Capoeira Angola, remains closer to the roots of the original style, and is a slower game with more emphasis on technique and strategy, rather than blinding speed and acrobatics. Capoeira Regional originated in 1930's, with a focus on fighting aspects of Capoeira, and utilizes a faster beat, flashy high kicks, and incredible acrobatics.

Martial Arts, Music & Brazilian Culture

Aside from the great workout that Capoeira provides coupled with learning the Brazilian Portuguese language and culture, you'll learn the awesome system of self-defense which has deceptive kicks, sweeps, blows and amazing gymnastic maneuvers. Capoeira is characterized not just by the elegant motions of the players, but by the unmistakably Brazilian music that accompanies it and the way in which it weaves with them to change the movements in a second from slow, fluid movement to successions of sharp, powerful kicks, and rapid motions.
