Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial-art form that combines self-defense, dance and acrobatics. Developed by African slaves who needed to disguise their martial arts from slave masters and other authorities. Capoeira helps people of all ages develop self-esteem, coordination, rhythm, strength, flexibility, and collaborative skills. It incorporates physical movement and awareness, self-expression, discipline, community, musicality, and the Portuguese language. For more info on capoeira classes visit,

What You Should Know

  • Enrollment after the start of the session will be prorated for the number of remaining weeks.
  • Space is limited
  • Students enroll for a full class session
  • Payment is due on the first day you attend the session. Cash or Check. You can also pay via friends and family to:
  • Also remember, parents/guardians are not required to stay with your child during class. In fact, we ask that you please drop your child/children off and and come back during the last 10 minutes of class to pick up your kids. The time alone is easier for the coach and other instructors (children behave differently away from their parent/guardian) to create the space necessary for them to function independently, build and bond with their coach, and not have to deal with more than one authority figure in the environment. Thank you for understanding. However, if we feel that your child needs you, we will ask you to stay. There is also a waiting room downstairs.
