About This Activity

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art, which incorporates dance, music, and acrobatics. The Capoeira youth program is designed to foster mental and physical development of all participating youth. In the program, youth learn the life skills necessary to become accountable, independent, productive and successful adults while staying fit and having fun. Through the art of Capoeira, this program gives youth a healthy and exciting activity to put their energy into. Parents will be invited to watch a performance on the last day of class. Armando Ibarra of Dragonfly Designs is known as “Baqueta” for his length and lean movements has been studying for over a decade with Omulu Capoeira under the direction of well known, Mestre Preguica. His dedication to the art of Capoeira and Afro-Brasilian culture has cultivated a deep commitment to arts programming for youth. He was assistant instructor at various SF Park and Recreation Centers, Mount Diablo High School and held his own classes at MAS summer program at Mission Cultural Center and Manhattanville College in New York. “Baqueta” has trained nationally and internationally in New York, Boston and Brasil. He hopes to inspire a healthy lifestyle and confidence while introducing his students to various aspects of Brasilian culture such as language, song and history. In his own words: “I first got into Capoeira in my adolescence. I was always active and it became a great way for me to move and unlock other skills that I never though possible, such as music and acrobatics. I focus mainly on youth because of how much power they have in themselves to learn a new skill in their own way. I feel it is very important for them to find something that they are passionate for and to carry that with them into their academics and life.”
