Children naturally love to move. Running, jumping and turning cartwheels are natural parts of active, motivated, and healthy lives. For children almost any physical activity is enough to keep them healthy as long as they are moving, and Capoeira really keeps them moving!
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, music and dance. In class, students will learn the movements of capoeira through fun and interactive games and learn the songs of capoeira sung in Brazilian Portuguese. Capoeira is a unique discipline teaching both movements and musical skills, as well as introducing children to a different culture and language.
Capoeira for children facilitates movement and exercise through games and basic Capoeira skills. The classes incorporate the unique music and songs of Capoeira and the students have the opportunity to learn and play the instruments, as well as sing songs!
