The Capoeira Experience
I will teach about capoeira, not only capoeira itself, but the other essential elements of it's existence. I had trained capoeira regional (the fast, flippy version) and some Angola (the slow, sneaky version) for a few years and will show you fundamentals and acrobatics. We will also learn about Afro-Brazilian culture, history, and music as well as fun facts about Brazil, some Brazilian Portuguese greetings and phrases, and my own serious and silly experiences with modern-day capoeira. Depending on the mood and what you are most interested in, lessons will vary.
Training & Qualifications
