Our Capoeira Essentials classes are designed to suit all abilities and previous experience in martial arts, dance, acrobatics or in any fitness program is not required. Our members come from all walks of life, have different fitness levels and range in age from 12 to 65 years old.
In the Capoeira Essentials class we work on the fundamentals and essential movements in Capoeira. These are the movements that are roots of capoeira. They are the movements that give you a base with which to grow, develop and evolve your Capoeira. This is the perfect class for beginners and advanced alike, as a tree is only as strong as its roots.
Most of our classes are an hour and a half long and you'll be guaranteed a great physical, mental and fun workout. Each Capoeira class is different but all classes have elements that improve your physical well being through challenging and rewarding exercises. You'll learn and practice kicks, dodges, acrobatics, flowing and rhythmic movements and also work on your flexibility, coordination, reflexes & agility.
You'll also get the opportunity to learn how to play Capoeira's traditional musical instruments and how to sing songs in Brazilian Portuguese. If that's not your thing though, don't worry! In Capoeira, there is something for everyone! The class will also allow you to feel a sense of belonging to a vibrant community that is inclusive and friendly.
Our essentials class follows our Boabá methodology. Each month of the year, you will learn a sequence of movements developed by our very own Mestre Kuata, that, upon completing all 8, will give you all the techniques that you will need to play a flowing, skillful and expressive game that is characteristic of our group Cordão de Ouro.

Music is what sets Capoeira apart and raises it high. It is the instruments that command the movements. They can make the movements slow like the trickle of a creek, or fast like the gust of the wind.
The songs that are sung go beyond expressing art, beauty and emotion. They tell stories of past and present, mestres that have come and gone and the ones that are here today. They tell tales of how to live our lives better, or how lives were lived in the days when Capoeira was young. The songs convey messages to the capoeiristas playing in the centre, to the capoeiristas clapping and singing in the roda and to the people that may be watching or listening beyond the roda.
Floreios are the more acrobatic movements in Capoeira, they can be in the air, on the ground or upside down. Floreios allow you to give colour and add beauty to your game.
In the Music and Floreios class, you will get the best of both worlds. You will learn how to play the instruments used in Capoeira; the tambor, the pandeiro and of course, the berimbau. You will learn the songs and the different beats that dictate different styles of game. And you will learn and strengthen your rhythm to feed you Capoeira.
You will also learn and evolve movements that are appropriate to your stage of your Capoeira journey. The movements will be taught leading from a base all the way to complex advanced movements. Each body is different and you may choose to specialise in a certain branch of movement, but we guarantee that your game will improve as your body improves.

Our Advanced Capoeira classes are designed for students with yellow cord or higher or those that have shown exceptional ability.
The movements taught in these classes requires a strong and steady foundation so participation in Capoeira Essentials classes is a must.
In the advanced classes, we follow the Boabá methodology and train with the "Tronco" modality. Movements taught in during these classes require high physical conditioning and mobility as well as a highly developed sense in the Capoeira game and the applications of fundamental skills. One of the purposes of the advanced classes is the condition the capoeirista as an athlete and artist that is trained to handle any and all roda situations with skill and poise.
The class is invitational and requires a high level of dedication to your Capoeira. The participants are hand picked by Mestre Kuata himself and are taught a higher level of understanding of our art form.
7:30 pm - 9:00 pm
Beyond our main Capoeira classes we offer another great class modality to complement your fitness and movement journey:
Adubo - Flexibility, Mobility & Strength
The term Adubo literally translates to fertilizer. The purpose of the Adubo class is to improve your quality of movement in your everyday life from the ground up. Adubo classes are designed to complement your chosen way to move and exercise through improving flexibility, mobility and strength, along with coordination, agility and body awareness.
