What is Capoeira Angola?



Capoeira Angola is an art form with African roots, developed in Brazil. Its ancient tradition and practice embody the principles of music, dance, and fight. It was practiced as a means of liberation from slavery.

Most of those enslaved and forced to work in plantations were not allowed to fight or keep their ancient practices.

This resulted in the disguise of a fight as a dance and game in which music and movement intertwine to form a tool of strategy and self-expression.

Capoeira teaches physical strength, music, discipline, respect for self and others, concentration, and humility. Classes offered explore the movements, music, knowledge, culture, and traditions of Capoeira Angola. Axé!!!
