CAPOEIRA ARTE E MOVIMENTO

Capoeira, an Afro-Brazilian art form, combines dance, fight, and game into an extraordinary mixture played to the rhythm of music. This fascinating martial art was developed in Brazil over 400 years ago. The game, or “jogo” as it is called in Portuguese, is played to live music within a circle of spectators, players, and musicians.

Two players enter the circle, and each player attempts to disequilibrize the other by forcing them into precarious positions. The “Berimbau”, a bowed string instrument, sets the rhythm and speed of the game. The movements are flowing and circular, and no two games are ever the same. Capoeira improves balance, focus, strength, and flexibility. Come learn this captivating and deceptive art form.

The class is open to everyone and all levels of experience. However, children 10 and under must have adult supervision. The class format is pretty basic and is as follows: warm-up, stretching, basic movements, group drills, partner drills, music/instrument practice, and the class finishes with a roda (the circle in which the game is played). This is a high energy class and will get you in-shape in no time at all. No experience necessary. Capoeira is for EVERYONE.

Payment and registration is required at the second class. However, to guarantee a spot in the class, you must pre-register. Please pre-register through Chapel Hill Parks and Recreation at this online address: http://www.chapelhillparks.org/registration.php, or call (919) 968-2784.

Just a reminder about the capoeira class starting this Tuesday in Chapel Hill. It begins at 6:30 pm and lasts until 8:30 pm. Show up early, especially if you have to change clothes. Wear comfortable clothes, and I recommend wearing tennis shoes if you have them. Contact me if you have any questions, or call the community center for directions (919) 968-2790. See you there.

Peace&luv,

Henry Garrett is a jackass. When are you leaving for California? I won't be able to see you in Wilmington before you leave but I would love to see "his judgeship" in LA during 2005.

Much Love,

I will be continuing to take this class on Thursdays. If anyone would like to join me, I highly recommend the class and Kevin as a teacher. I would also like to figure out a day for DSI Capoeira Class.

Post here if you're interested.
