Beginner Capoeira Classes
These are ongoing classes; anyone who has completed the adult "Introduction to Capoeira" 3 month program can join. This class is designed to continue to build your Capoeira foundation and to teach you more ways to move from your base exploring new ways to express yourself through the art of Capoeira. We will continue to focus on developing: rhythm, reflexes, balance, coordination and increasing strength and flexibility.
Advanced Capoeira Classes
This is a more advanced level of training for students who have already progressed through the belt system used in Capoeira. This class will cover all aspects of Capoeira ranging from basic moves to more complex movements and sequences and acrobatics. Students at this level are expected to gain a better understanding of Capoeira as a whole (history, music, game, etc…) by participating in all that is offered at this school: Rodas, music and dance classes and performances. These classes are usually longer and more physically and mentally demanding. This class is suited for students from intermediate to advanced instructors and top professionals of Capoeira.
What should I expect in my first class?
Please come to class expecting to be challenged both physically and mentally. Capoeira class consists of a medium intensity warm up, followed by stretches to improve flexibility and, lastly, focus on basic to advanced Capoeira movements and kicks. You will sweat. You will ache. You will want to stop. Just like starting any new activity,
the more you train, the faster your body will adapt.
What to bring to class: comfortable exercise shirt and pants (preferably white), a water bottle, an open mind and, a complete lack of self-doubt helps, but can be earned if not previously acquired.
If you try Capoeira it will likely be one of the most rewarding challenges you will ever undertake. Your body will become stronger, your mind sharper. You will develop self-confidence, better balance, improved flexibility, and lasting friendships after just a few classes.
