Open your child’s eyes to a world of movement, music & culture!
Capoeira is a fantastic opportunity for kids to be exposed to a unique blend of martial arts, music, culture and camaraderie.
Children of all ages can benefit from the fun and friendly atmosphere that not only provides a challenging aerobic and acrobatic workout, but helps kids develop their confidence and self esteem.
Capoeira involves movement utilizing the entire body developing strength, coordination and flexibility.
Kids also get a chance to play traditional Capoeira instruments and learn to sing traditional Capoeira songs in Portuguese.
