WHAT IS CAPOEIRA?
Capoeira is a unique Brazilian movement/art form fusing elements of martial arts, dance, music and culture. Developed by enslaved African peoples in Brazil, it comes with history and connections to a vast range of dance, music and communal practices all brought together as an expression of togetherness and identity. Capoeira is played as a game between to players, inside a roda (pronounced ho-da), a circle of musicians, singers and other players. It's a playful and respectful game between friends, who create a conversation of movement, each responding to the other. It's a great way to get physically active, boost your fitness and improve your stamina, strength and flexibility.
