For all the fitness fiends that will be up to the challenge, Instrutor Mucuiu will introduce the participants to the basics of capoeira, its origins and music. The presentation will include also the impressive maculele and the exuberant samba de roda, which will give a taste of the rich folkloric traditions surrounding capoeira.

The adult class will be from 12 to 2 pm.


Capoeira is an ancient Brazilian martial art, invented by the African slaves in the XVI century. It combines power, speed, and leverage for a variety of kicks and spins, which are performed following the music of traditional percussion instruments and songs.


Today capoeira still epitomizes the spirit of Brazil with its dexterity, trickery, poetry and music.


Benefits of capoeira practice include: endurance, strength, flexibility and weight loss.
