Capoeira is a Brazilian art combining instrumental music, song, dance, martial arts, ritual, theater, and more. This ensemble focuses on Capoeira Angola, a traditional style from the Brazilian Northeast associated with Brazil’s African heritage. In this ensemble students will learn how to play the instruments of the capoeira ensemble, sing capoeira songs in Portuguese, basic techniques of the physical game, and the fundamentals of the performance.
