We are proud to offer programming for children in all our locations. Currently our classes are all age ranges but additional offerings for ages (3-6) and (7-15) will be made in the future. Capoeira is a wonderful martial art-form for children to learn focus, discipline and respect in a safe environment that is fun and challenging.
In addition to learning the movements of capoeira that include elements of self-defense, acrobatics, they will learn another language (Portuguese), learn how to play instruments, sing, and dance in this cross-cultural experience. The physical benefits are immense; better coordination, flexibility, strength, endurance and balance to just name a few!

With bullying and the various pressures that children face today, in this martial art they will acquire the tools to become more confident in and out of the classroom in a way that allows them to exercise their bodies and minds. Exercise and music have both been shown in various studies to augment performance in school as well.
It is said that capoeira is for men, women and children and capoeira is like a family. Your child will engage in a community that also teaches accountability and responsibility. Capoeira is fun for the entire family and we look forward to offering quality programming.
We are available for artist residencies, workshops and classes. We additionally offer classes for children with special abilities. Ask about these special offerings today!
