Youth Capoeira

A fun, dynamic way to get youth in Ottawa involved in a creative and physical activity!

Grupo de Capoeira Dendê do Recife has been offering classes to kids and teens in this region for over a decade.

Children will learn the cultural and historical aspects of capoeira, while strengthening physical qualities, such as balance, motor skills, coordination and strength. Developed with young people in mind, these dynamic classes get students moving and active while promoting discipline, confidence, respect, self-awareness, creativity and spontaneity. Capoeira is a non-contact discipline and encourages working together to develop one another's skills in the game, helping students of all levels learn self-expression in a fun and playful environment.

Currently offering youth classes in the Glebe for 9-14 yr olds.
