In the youth and adult Capoeira program, expect to be exposed to a variety of different ground movements, aerial acrobatics, conditioning exercises, and strong attacks and defenses that can be tailored to your own strengths and personal ability level. Our regular class structure begins with a warm-up that is followed by individual and partner training, and an end-of-class roda. Whether you enjoy music, culture, or just love a good workout, you’ll find something you can excel at in Capoeira. Get Started Today!
KIDS FLIPS AND TRICKS CLASS is Friday, 4:00-5:00 pm
ADULTS FLIPS AND TRICKS CLASS is Friday, 6:00-7:00 pm
Open to the public, not just capoeira students!
Our flips and tricks classes are taught by Espeto and Azul who have years of experience training, coaching, and spotting acrobatics. This class is geared specifically to learning to tumble in small spaces like you would in a capoeira roda. There is a large emphasis on basic tumbling moves. Students will be spending a portion of each class on body conditioning, followed by instruction on cartwheels, round offs, aerials, back handsprings, back flips, dive rolls, and front flips. After a mastery of these basics the students will have the opportunity to branch out into more difficult tumbling combinations and ideas. Our head tumbling instructor has been named by many students and parents as the best tumbling instructor they have had, helping students break through barriers and learn to do their flips correctly and consistently.
