Event description

Capoeira, brought to Brazil by African slaves, is a unique art form that combines elements of martial arts, dance and acrobatics performed to the background of Brazilian instruments and music. Students will not only be thrilled by the agility, precision and power of the dancers and movements, but will also explore the rich historical significance of the 500-year-old art form. See Ile Bahia Capoeira in action here.
