Capoeira Practices Prepares You for All of Life's Games
What is the Brazilian fight /dance art?
Capoeira was practiced by people being oppressed who sought creative ways to survive and to achieve freedom. With self defense as the basic rule, Capoeira's is a game played between 2 people in a circle of improv singing and percussion music.
This workshop introduces the back and forth energy of body motion, to prepare you to receive (defense) and offer (kick). We learn to move on the ground with our hands, and acrobatics movements top-out at cartwheels.
