Every Saturday at 9:00 – 10:00 am beginning February 4th
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art disguised as a dance and performed to musical instruments and traditional Brazilian songs. It is comprised of specific offensive and defensive movements and, in contrast to other martial arts, the participant is constantly in motion. Students will learn the movements of capoeira along with the music and songs traditionally used in the sport.
Contra Mestre Bomba has been teaching the art of Capoeira in Bahia, Brazil and more recently, in Washington, DC, for more than 20 years with the group Barro Vermelho Capoeira. He also teaches an adult capoeira class on Sundays at 11:00 am.
Class is conducted largely in Portuguese, however students can easily learn by example. Children learning Spanish in their classes will have an opportunity to practice their vocabulary as well.
