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.
Thursdays Capoeira Kids Class Just for pre-schoolers! We run, jump, roll, balance, sing songs, hit drums and play capoeira. Parents and carers can join in too!
Thursdays Beginners Class Focussing on the basics of capoeira this class is a great intro to the art form that will get you moving and thinking in new ways.
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.
