Over 400 years ago on Brazilian soil, African slaves developed the martial art of Capoeira as a means to resist oppression. The singing, clapping, and traditional musical instruments that accompany Capoeira lead many to believe it is a dance; but concealed within the fluid movements and playfulness lie strategic attacks and seamless takedowns.

Capoeira is for adults and children of all ages and abilities. Whether you’re seeking to improve your balance, agility, strength, coordination — or simply looking for a great workout in a positive environment — come try a class!
