Capoeira Workshops

Capoeira is a 400 year old Afro-Brazilian martial art/dance that combines music & song with flowing movements in highly stylized "games" that promote health and coordination.

Workshops are aimed at anyone between the ages of 6 to 60 and a single session is usually 1 - 2 hours long. A typical workshop normally starts with a short description of Capoeira and its history. After a brief warm up, a set of traditional movements are taught. Individuals then pair up and practice these movements in a free but controlled way. The musical side of Capoeira is then introduced and the group is encouraged to sing and to play various traditional instruments. Finally a circle is formed, the music starts and the game begins.
