Our adult classes are 1.5 hours long. They begin with stretching, warm-up and strengthening exercises—which is why it is very important to arrive on time for class and avoid injuries. The training portion of the class focuses on repetition of Capoeira movements to build strength, form and the endurance for the art. Classes end with a roda (capoeira circle). Portuguese language practice is an important aspect of class; we learn numbers, movements, songs and basic vocabulary while we train.
All classes are held at Capoeira Vida’s Brooklyn studio space: WAY OF ACTION, 316 7th St at 5th Ave, 2nd floor
After completing our Intro to Capoeira Series, these classes cater to those with 0-4 years of capoeira or anyone looking to strengthen their capoeira foundation. Physical conditioning, individual skills, drill combinations and musicality are the focus of these classes and are required before joining the All-Levels classes.
SATURDAYS: 11am-12:30pm - Full white uniform required!
These mixed-level classes build on the foundation developed in the Introduction to Capoeira series & Beginners classes and introduce students to a wider variety of combinations, kicks, dodges, acrobatics and take-downs.
