Age Group: 
Adult
Teens
Children

Capoeira is an exuberant martial art that combines high energy rhythms with exciting acrobatic movements.  The art was created by Afro-Brazilians slaves during Brazil's colonial period.  Because they were not allowed to practice any form of self-defense nor to use weapons, enslaved Afro-Brazilians disguised their training to look like a dance. 

Join us for an afternoon of dance, martial arts and traditional songs and rhythms.
