Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form. A combination of music, movement and history, born of the struggle for liberation by African peoples brought to the new world. Within this beautiful endeavor steeped in a deep culture and history, students explore a range of possibilities through dance, acrobatics, instrumental and vocal music. Capoeira has always been used as a tool for liberation: personal, spiritual and social. Children in Brazilian shanty towns count on capoeira to keep them off the streets and safe, many adults in the US depend on the art as soma-therapy, and St. Louisans rely on capoeira class for healthy living and meaningful involvement in a social justice-minded community.
