New Capoeira Classes Starting March 1st With Dimitri Kelly says
Every Tuesday and Thursday at 6:00pm is Capoeira!
Capoeira is a Brazilian cultural experience and martial art created by African slaves in Brazil as a form of self-defense and cultural preservation. Though it has martial aspects, capoeira is not a fight; it is a game combining martial arts with music and acrobatic movements. It is played in a roda (circle) by two capoeiristas who exchange a spontaneous corporal dialogue through a combination of kicks, offensive moves, acrobatics and floor maneuvers. Through the movements of capoeira, students gain strength, balance and flexibility. In addition to these benefits, students build self-confidence and self-esteem, while contributing to the building of a strong and vibrant local community. Be prepared to fall in love with this art! It is great exercise, musically rewarding, fun, challenging, and community building! This class is designed for all ages and all levels of ability! ☺ Price: $15/ drop in or $44 for 4 weeks or studio class card option!
