This special demo workshop will introduce families to Capoeira. Capoeira is designed to foster mental and physical development. Through the art of Capoeira, the program gives youth and their families a healthy and exciting activity to put their energy into. The difficulty of the exercises depends on the age group and level of the students. Each class will conclude with a group circle (roda) where students clap, sing, play music and rehearse the movements they have learned against each other.
