Capoeira – pronounced “cap-o-ay-ra” (Join in any week until November 2022)

Online only

Online Recovery College Courses (18+)

Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art disguised as dance and performed to musical instruments and traditional Brazilian songs. It is composed of specific offensive and defensive movements and, unlike in other martial arts, the participant is constantly in motion because of the basic movement, the ginga. Your teacher will be Sandro Alves, who is a native of Brazil.

During these Capoeira sessions you will learn a combination of positions on the ground, kicks, sweeps and acrobatics, though the sessions can easily be adapted for those who would prefer to remain seated, or take it at a gentler pace.

This course is offered to you alongside our partner Open Country as part of the NHS Charities Together funding.

This course is a roll on roll off course, join for as long as you like over a year period.
