CapoeiraCapoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form. It is a fusion of dance, acrobatics martial arts and music. Acrobatic ability IS NOT required to participate. Capoeira is for EVERYBODY. It was created by Descendants of African slaves in Brazil during the Portuguese colonization. Africans were not allowed to practice their traditional martial arts, therefore they created Capoeira, a martial art disguised as a dance. Capoeira combines physical (acrobatics, martial art, and dance), musical (drumming and singing) and philosophical elements (a way of life that seeks health and freedom by keeping the body strong and agile and healing through movement and music). In a typical Capoeira class students learn the fundamentals of all these aspects.
Don't be put off joining a capoeira class because you're not a gymnast or acrobat. Beginners are not expected to be able to do cartwheels and handstands from the outset. However, your fitness will build from day one and after a few months of training, you might be surprised what you can do.
