Class Description

The Brazilian art of Capoeira combines elements of martial arts, dance, acrobatics, fighting, playing and music into a dynamic game. The movements of capoeira include attacks and dodges or defenses, dance-like steps, and acrobatic tricks and flourishes. Capoeira is an intersection of dancing and fighting; a game, played to the rythms of the berimbau, other instruments, and customary songs. Students of capoeira learn basic Portuguese, the customs, philosophy, and traditional music of capoeira, and learn about Brazilian culture. Training capoeira improves poise, confidence, musical skills, strength and flexibility, and inspires self-reflection and creative expression.

Instructor Background

Susan has been teaching Capoiera since 2006.
