Capoeira is a Brazilian art form that combines and embodies elements of combat, music, acrobatics and much more.  Capoeira is an art form for anyone and everyone. 


Centro Cultural offers capoeira classes for various levels, from beginner to advanced.  Beginners require no prior experience in martial arts or acrobatics and are encouraged to work within their comfort zone. Capoeira helps build cardiovascular fitness, strength, flexibility and rhythm. You will be surprised at what you can do only after a few classes!  Classes generally focus on the fundamentals of capoeira, its movements and applying these in games and the roda, where the art form is put into practice.
