Capoeira is a Brazilian cultural expression that combines martial arts, sport, Brazilian popular culture, and music.
In 2014, UNESCO declared the ‘Roda de Capoeira’ an Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity.
Today, Capoeira is a form of cultural expression, self-defence, and one of the best exercises for body and mind. Capoeira has the capacity to develop musicality, corporal expression and to enhance well-being.
The objective of the workshop will be a 60-minute workshop class of capoeira, explaining its cultural history, musicality, dance and movement, with special mention of the cultural roles of samba de roda and maculelê.
