The History of Capoeira has undoubtedly started with the deportation of African slaves to Brazil. Unable to understand with each other, the slaves were forced to communicate in Portuguese. Capoeira is a meeting of culture, rituals, music and fighting technique, the dance of the zebra, still practiced in Africa.

The game of Capoeira is growing in the center of a circle (roda) where two capoeiristas exchange respectful and malicious attacks. The other dancers are around and play the rhythm while singing, playing instruments and clapping.

The beginner Capoeirista prepares the flexibility of his body, the agility and balance while learning the songs and rhythms of Capoeira under the direction of our prof. Alex “TIMBALADA”
