In learning Capoeira, students ages 5 to 8 develop skills in self-defense, acrobatics, fitness, instrument playing, rhythm and singing, language skills, teamwork, and strategy development.
Capoeira instills the values of responsibility and self-confidence while awakening creativity through the development of self-expression. In class a student develops body awareness through the use of self-defense skills, acrobatics, and general fitness.
Capoeira increases memory, balance, mood and behavior, and like any regular physical activity, is the first defense against childhood obesity. Children are mentally engaged through instrument playing, rhythm and singing, language skills, teamwork, and strategy development, all while understanding limits and respect for one another.
