Beginner & All Levels Capoeira with Mestre Pitta: Ages 13+ (Gas Works Park)
July 24 @ 7:30 pm - 8:30 pm$20
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. 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. Class is for ages 13 and older, with the exception of some of our ongoing youth Capoeira students age 8-12.
This class is held at Gas Works Park right on Lake Union!
Make sure to wear shoes and bring plenty of water.
Registration is required ahead of taking class.
