CAPOEIRA is a great activity for children from 3 years and up, teenagers and adults.
No physical skills are required to get started: Capoeira is not just a sport but also a cultural activity that everyone can discover at their own pace.
Classes begin with a warm up to music. Next you learn the different moves: how to attack, dodge and do acrobatics ('floreios') - you practice all together and then in pairs.
Music is also an important part of the class, including both the mastery of capoeira instruments and songs.
All courses end with a 'roda' - a capoeira circle or ring formed by students, within which two students play together to the rhythm of the music and singing of other capoeiristas around the circle.
Capoeira also improves your physical fitness - it helps with breathing, flexibility, muscle tone, improves your sense of rhythm, and your body's responsiveness.
Finally, Capoeira transmits essential values of sharing and respect, and helps you relax: the class is a time of celebration that will fill you with energy and put you in a great mood!
CAPOEIRA IS A GAME, AND IT IS LOTS OF FUN!
