Capoeira is a dynamic art form that encourages practitioners to work together as a collaborative team. The roda de capoeira – the circle formed by students to play capoeira – requires that all participants have an active role; playing instruments, singing, clapping, performing movements. Thus, a supportive environment that encourages cooperation and teamwork, develops organically.
By cultivating creativity and encouraging self-expression in a fun and supportive environment, students develop spatial awareness, motor-coordination and rhythmic abilities.
Our encouraging teaching approach allows students to develop valuable skills – confidence, respect, perseverance, grit, leadership, problem-solving, empathy – that will accompany them for a lifetime.
Through the practice of Capoeira kids can:
- be active and develop health awareness
- develop empathy
- develop social skills and rhythmic abilities
- build confidence and discipline
- develop leadership skills
- develop cultural awareness
- embrace diversity
