Beginner Capoeira for Adults: Winter Series (Age 13+)
January 10 @ 6:30 pm - 7:30 pm$150
Learn the unique movements, technique, history and music of Capoeira Regional as you gain physical and aerobic conditioning through exercises targeting strength, stamina, reflexes, speed, flexibility and balance. Your skill will build from the basic ginga step and advance with emphasis on technique and style. Students work individually, as well as with partners and in groups. You’ll also learn the history of Capoeira Regional and its founder, Mestre Bimba. In addition to the rhythms and songs of Capoeira, you will learn to recognize and play the instruments integral to Capoeira: Pandeiro, A-go-go, Atabaque (ah-tah-bah-ki) and Berimbau. Classes gradually combine all elements of song, music, and movement as students learn to play in a roda (circle) with others.
The class is taught in Portuguese as well as in English.
**Please wear long work-out pants, as well as a comfortable t-shirt or tank top. Capoeira is done barefoot. Please let us know if you have any difficulty doing exercise without shoes.**
