A martial art disguised as dance, capoeira was created by slaves who wanted to practice self-defence — without their masters realising it.
You have probably seen fake versions of it in foreign cinema. Now you will see and practice the authentic capoeira. From a consummate master of the art, you will learn its basic principles and movements. You will also learn to play different Brazilian percussion instruments such as atabaque and pandeiro, and rhythms like samba, maracatu and ijexá.
This class will give you an insight into the soul of Bahia, Brazil’s most energetic region.
