WHAT TO EXPECT

Capoeira is a full body workout.  Classes begin promptly 10 mins past the hour.  After a warm up, students practice drills in a line up, across the floor, or with a partner.  Classes usually end with a roda (pronounced Ho-da) where students take turns playing Capoeira with each, while the other students bring energy to the game by singing, clapping and playing traditional musical instruments.   

Some classes may warm up with Maculelê, an Afro-Brazilian dance traditionally performed with machetes, but now performed as a "mock stick combat".  Dancers hold two sticks in their hands while they are performing, striking their sticks together and making expressive and athletic dance movements.

FIRST TIME STUDENTS

Beginners should wear comfortable workout clothes that allow for free movement and make you feel like a super hero. No shoes or socks in class. Bring water/refillable water bottle and a change of clothes as you will have a good sweat.
