[NEWS! 24-Feb-2013]: A new set of free trial classes have been announced. The next one is on the 26th of Feb 2013.
Capoeira is a unique Brazilian art form combining martial arts with elements of dance, music, and gymnastics. For many, it is not only a fun way to keep fit and healthy but also a way to learn more about Brazilian culture. Capoeira encourages a positive body image and develops confidence, self- esteem and team skills.
Meet our group and make new friends at our Capoeira Facebook group.
