This course is foundational and we recommend trying to not to miss a class, as we build upon the knowledge from week to week. If you do have to miss a session, or want to review anything, we include a digital video re-cap after each class that goes straight into your inbox!
The course will cover some basic movement patterns such as the “Ginga”, we will introduce you to four basic esquivas (dodges) and kicks, as well as a few simple, and accessible, acrobatic elements.
The goal of the course is to actually play Capoeira in the final week. This can sound scary at first, but it simply means you’ll be able to apply all the things you’ve learned in a no pressure and friendly environment.
Although we have an overall structure in mind (see below), we will be modifying the class in order to better pace it to the attendees. Capoeira is a life long exploration of movement, so if we cover a little more or a little less it’s ok, is a drop in the bucket in the grand scheme.
