What is Capoeira?

The ancient art form of Brazilian Capoeira developed over 500 years ago by African people in Brazil to celebrate life. It was a fundamental building block of Brazilian culture and united diverse communities residing in Brazil. The art is a mixture of indigenous, African and Portuguese influences. Capoeira today has changed dramatically from its origins 500 years ago. Today it is a folkloric expression of Brazilian people that has become a nationally recognized art.

Capoeira combines dance, music, song, acrobatics and philosophy. The music tells stories of the present and the past and is an important part of creating the ambiance of the art. The art is played between two people inside a circle called the “roda”. Capoeira's philosophy teaches people key life skills such as confidence, self-discipline, fitness and self-respect. Across the United States and worldwide, Brazilian Capoeira is practiced by people of diverse communities. It is an art form that has gained as much popularity as soccer!
