Capoeira beginners class, spring 2024

Capoeira is a Brazilian amalgamation of martial arts, dance, and a physical game. Capoeira is a multidimensional sport and it is played to the rhythm of Afro-Brazilian music. Features of Afro-Brazilian popular culture, the performing art of dance, full contact battle, contact improvisation, and acrobatics can be seen in it. 

We welcome all capoeiristas to train with us in the Capoeira Angola beginners class! 

The beginner's class is on Thursdays. However, you are warmly welcome also to the Saturday training which is for all levels. On Saturdays, we often focus more on playing capoeira and capoeira music as well as practising the art of roda de capoeira – the circle where the capoeira game is played and performed. 

In our classes, we aim to incorporate a multitude of different facets of capoeira, ranging from movement to music and different aspects of Afro-Brazilian culture. Come and try capoeira for free! Welcome!
