Capoeira Angola Kids Class

Capoeira Angola is an Afro-Brazilian art form that incorporates elements of dance and music into movements.  Capoeira Angola is ideal for children because it encourages playful and spontaneous self-expression while encouraging teamwork and self-confidence.  Each class includes warm-up, drills, partner sequences, tumbling, games and music.  Students need no prior gymnastic or martial art experience. I love having the opportunity to work with children, and share, not only the art of Capoeira Angola, but the music and culture of the art.
