No matter how sharp your teeth, you can’t bite water

Celebrate Black History Month with Capoeira! Created by African slaves in Brazil.  Capoeira combines elements of sports dance rhythm and music. The amazing Capoeira Martial Arts encourages flexibility of mind and body.  With acrobatics, music, song, kicks and dance movements you learn to evade your opponent.

This is a favourite workshop for the youth in particular because I think there are lots of arts based programs that currently exist that allow youth to heal and grow from their practices.  My goal is to show that not only the movement of capoeira does this, but also the natural combination of music, language, singing, and instrument playing that is also vital to the art form.  Together, the movement and arts work together to create room for healing and growth.

Capoeira is a martial art that combines elements of fight, acrobatics, music, dance and rituals in a very elegant and magnetic way.  Performed by two people, it is often called a game that is played, not a fight.  Capoeira is always played with a smile on your face symbolizing that the Capoeiristas are not afraid of the danger that is coming.

The uniqueness of Capoeira will give your body physical strength, power and flexibility, and your mind self-confidence, concentration, courage and creativity.  I`ve heard many people say that capoeira is one of the best things that happened in their life.
