Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art that incorporates dance, acrobatics, martial arts ⁣⁣⁣and rhythm. It teaches spatial awareness, balance, focus, cultural appreciation and serves the⁣⁣⁣ practitioner in self-defense.

It originated from the Africans enslaved in Brazil who used it to⁣⁣⁣ defend themselves while disguising the training as a dance or harmless game.⁣⁣⁣

Today, capoeira is practiced all over the world.⁣⁣⁣

Free and open to the public.
