Capoeira Class & Circle
August 10, 2018 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm CDT
Brazilian Arts Foundation is happy to collaborate with Houston’s very own Midtown Park for a series of outdoor classes for the general public free of charge!
Every second Friday of every month from 7:00 pm to 9:00 pm (regular class time).
These outdoor classes replace the corresponding indoor class held at the BAF cultural center on that day only.
Come and try a free capoeira class at the beautiful Midtown Park with us!
Experience a form of movement that combines spins, turns, precisely aimed kicks, evasive defense moves, and breathtaking acrobatics. Capoeira is a unique Afro-Brazilian played in a ‘roda,’ or circle, between two players. It challenges physical agility and coordination, as well as strategy and interaction. Students learn the physical art, as well as how to play music (an essential component) on a variety of instruments used in the roda, and to sing and speak in Portuguese. The class is free and open to all skill levels! Instruction is provided by the Brazilian Arts Foundation.
