Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form. A combination of music, movement and history, born of the struggle for liberation by African peoples brought to the new world. Within this beautiful endeavor students explore a range of possibilities through dance, acrobatics, instrumental and vocal music. Capoeira also proves itself a remarkable medium for the teaching of community building, social justice, and diaspora studies. It is a self-esteem and confidence builder which develops the connection between mind and body, allowing us to recognize our capacity to physically realize even abstract ideas.
