Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art and dance that focuses on being mindful with strategy and position above speed and force, wisdom and playfulness over violence. Hidden in dance, played as a game, there is grace, beauty, risk, reward, and danger. . Capoeira is played as a game between two practitioners inside of a circle of other Capoeira players and a group of musicians. Each class begins with music and movement then moves into exercises practicing combinations of movements with a partner, learning more detailed movements, and playing games (jogos) of Capoeira Angola.
