Capoeira is a full body and mind workout and no two classes are ever the same. Beginners are welcome to join us at any session (click here for more information). With that in mind our classes have a slightly different focus throughout the week;
Tuesdays All round capoeira night. The main class is a mix of warm-up, stretching, conditioning, capoeira exercises and rodas (games). The follow-on class focuses on the music and instrumental side of capoeira.
Fridays Children’s Class An hour long session for 5 to 10 year olds that uses capoeira to develop physical and social skills. Exercises are based on fun, interaction and letting off steam at the end of the week!
Fridays. You know those fancy moves that make capoeira what it is? They’re known as floreiros. The mats are down and it’s a chance to learn some of the more challenging manoeuvers to put into your game.
Saturdays. “Little Legs-Big Legs”. Running during term times this is a new class for youngsters and adults. Our classes are a mix of movement, dance, music and gameplay all designed to get little legs moving, but with a chance for those with big legs to get involved.
