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 enjoys having the opportunity to work with children, and sharing, not only the art of Capoeira Angola, but the music and culture of the art.

Each day kids will get a chance to enjoy interactive Spanish lessons, create arts and crafts from different countries, learn about Latin American culture, and get moving with Capoeira—an Afr0-Brazilian martial-arts dance form. Campers will also explore the arts with Action Jackson Comics, and take a field trip to the I.D.E.A. store where students can select materials for one of our projects, and have lunch in the park weather permitting. Bring a sack lunch and wear comfortable clothes.
