In learning Capoeira, students ages 9 to 12 develop skills in self-defense, acrobatics, fitness, instrument playing, rhythm and singing, language skills, teamwork, and strategy development.

Capoeira instills the values of responsibility, self-confidence all while awakening creativity through the development of self-expression.

Through fun games, drills, and exercises, children learn to “play capoeira” with an understanding of limits and respect for each other. Classes will keep your child physically fit and mentally engaged.

Students will learn the movements of capoeira along with the music and songs traditionally used in the sport.

Capoeira promotes quick reaction and decision making which translates into enhanced memory retrieval in the classroom; training Capoeira increases memory, balance, mood and behavior, and like any regular physical activity, is the first defense against childhood obesity.

The Instructors and adult role-models in Capoeira teach young people valuable life lessons—confidence, leadership, goal-setting, team-work, expression, cultural and social cooperation, respect and tradition, and habits that can lead to a lifetime of good health and civic involvement.
