Student screen caps from class!

UPDATE after Spring session:

We’ve had people join from all over the USA and the world (Canada, Japan, France) and truly it has been so heart-warming to see people excited to sing, learn, and get strong together! Let’s keep spreading the word and find ways to break through international borders with the internet! If you have friends abroad, let me know about adding classes at different times to accommodate time differences! We are ALL in this TOGETHER!

New to capoeira?

The best way to learn what it is, is to try it out. You can watch this video and reach out if you have any questions. During each class, you will learn music and movements unique to capoeira (as well as physical conditioning) and you will get immediate feedback as I am watching each student. You can ask questions at any time. Hope to see you in class!
