Kids can now experience the powerful, expressive martial art of Capoeira, which dates back nearly 500 years and is rooted in rich African traditions brought to Brazil by enslaved Africans. In this class, students will learn to move with power and grace and have tons of fun, regardless of fitness level. Kids will develop agility and self-confidence by learning a rich repertoire of kicks, ground moves, creative escapes, acrobatics and partnered sequences. Students will clap to capoeira rhythms and learn simple Capoeira songs. The class will always end with a roda, the “circle” in in which Capoeira games are traditionally played. Contra-Mestra Tigresa emphasizes proper and safe technique with humor and patience.
