Come and try capoeira with the Women’s Resource Center Armenia!


CaptureWhat is capoeira?

Capoeira is a martial art and a dance that is practiced with music and singing in a group. Capoeira was originally created by African slaves in Brazil as a form of expression and resistance against repressive exploitation conditions. Today, Capoeira is practiced all over the world in different forms because it holds a universal language of body expression and liberation of the body and the mind.

What will capoeira teach me?

Capoeira is singing, playing music, dancing and fighting all at the same time!

With capoeira, you will learn

• a new way of dialogue with your body

• basic movements for self-defense and attacking

• transmitting energy with your singing and your body involvement
