Capoeira

 

Capoeira

 

In this activity, students become familiar with the historical background in which Capoeira developed. They also learn basic terms (Portuguese language) to identify some of the key elements (movements/instruments) necessary for participating in the activity. Appreciation of relevant Brazilian music is another element of the activity in which students are actively involved. Finally, by practicing Capoeira, students gain balance, strength, agility, and body coordination and at the same time experience a rich Afro-Brazilian cultural tradition.
