We're sorry, but this activity is over. The last meeting was Tuesday, November 29, 2016.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art form that incorporates acrobatics, dance, percussion, and songs in a rhythmic dialogue of body, mind, and spirit. It is a communal game in which two players play each other inside a circle, formed by the other players who create rhythm for the game by clapping, singing and playing traditional instruments. The two 'capoeristas' play a game together using capoeira movements, camouflaging self-defense kicks with playful acrobatics and dance-like moves, spontaneously creating a strategy to fool the other player and perhaps catch them off guard. At the same time, the two players work together to build a beautiful, harmonic and naturally-flowing game. For videos and photos, please go to www.abada.org
