Capoeira Club

 
Capoeira Club at Event,

The Prescott Capoeira Club aims to promote the African-Brazilian Art form of Capoeira through classes and performances provided free and by-donation to the community. 

Developed over 400 years by Africans enslaved in Brazil, Capoeira combines self-defense, acrobatics and folkloric traditions in a dynamic physical dialog that takes place in time to live music. Classes focus on strength, flexibility and endurance training through the physical forms of Capoeira Regional and Angola, Maculele, and Samba. Students also learn the accompanying traditions of music and folklore, learning to play traditional instruments and rhythms, and sing traditional songs in Portuguese.
