Summer Times: Instructor on sabbatical.
Capoeira Regional was developed in the 20th century by Mestre Bimba, a legendary Capoeirista in Brazil. Capoeira Regional is a unique art form that combines dance, music, and martial arts. This class is for all levels, from beginners at their very first class to advanced students. This class will teach the elements of Capoeira Regional:
- Ginga – the basic movement in capoeira
- Esquivas – dodges from kicks
- Chutes – round kicks
- Floreios – acrobatic movements
- Cantigas – capoeira songs in Portuguese
To register, simply show up to one of our regulary scheduled classes and we will get you signed up. Wear loose, comfortable clothing that does not restrict your range of motion. Bring water, and possibly a towel, since it can get hot when we are training.
