Cradled in Brazil, Capoeira is a way of movement with African roots. Beginning as a martial art, the activity was cleverly disguised behind playful dance moves. Distinctive musical instruments and Brasilian songs are an integral part of Capoeira, adding to the art’s vibrant flavour. Capoeira’s broad contribution to Brazilian cultural heritage has been recognised by UNESCO.

We are part of Capoeira Senzala, a school of Capoeira created in 1963 in Rio de Janeiro. Extending across most of the world, Capoeira Senzala is one of the most renowned Capoeira schools today.

In our trainings we practise characteristic Capoeira movement patterns, kicks and defensive dodges. We also learn to play instruments and sing Capoeira songs. The practice supports and advances physical development in versatile ways, including balance and coordination, stamina and general dynamic mobility. Practising Capoeira naturally helps to develop general spatial awareness and reaction time.
