Capoeira Angola is an afro-brazilian
musical art form where the participants
engage into a game that involves physical
strength, acrobatic movements, knowledge of
music, and awareness of what is happening around us at the time of the game.
Capoeira Angola, can build self-esteem and self-awareness of both the mind and body. The dynamics of the roda, and how individuals can discover and maximize their potentials, by using them to construct a foundation built upon patience, endurance and elegance. You will tone both mind and body with a focus on building core strength, balance, and total body workout.
Each class will focus on discovering the possibilities of each participant.
Coordination, flexibility and musicality will be some of the essential strengths to build and improve in each individual.
Here is an example of a capoeira "jogo" (game) without music, in order to appreciate the physicality of the art.
