Children's Capoeira

When: Wednesday 4.15-5.15 pm

Childrens Capoeira - with 2015 Capoeira world champion Jerri Da Silva.

Capoeira is a fantastic activity for children as it empowers them in a number of different ways. It helps to burn the extra energy of the more active ones and it stimulates and builds up the confidence of the more introspective ones. It fuels their imagination as they learn to communicate through acrobatic and “attack” “defense” moves.

Each class is about 45min to 1 hour long and is designed for children aged 4-16. Students, however, are often split into narrower age groups (4-8 and 9-16).During some classes, parents are encouraged to participate to get fit and have fun along with their children!

Working with a dedicated and experienced teacher, these classes provideour young students with the experience in all key components of Capoeira such as, acrobatics andmusic.
