OPERATIONS DURING COVID-19

MEMBER SHIELD PROGRAM

From the 25th of May, as per the WA government reccommendations regarding COVID-19, we will be re-opening our studio for in person classes.

We missed being face-face with our students so much and we are excited to get back into the studio.

The health and safety of our members is extremely important to us, therefore we will be adhering to all governments guidelines regarding social distancing, hygiene and cleaning at the studio.

We have created the MEMBER SHIELD PROGRAM which explains the measurements we are taking to adhere to these guidelines and minimize the risk of infection by Covid-19.

Live-stream online classes are still continuing for adults only. Go to the menu for the online classes page.

These are unprecedented times and now more than ever, it is important for adults and children to keep active, fit, joyful, positive and connected to a community.

We at Capoeira CDO Perth are here to help you and support you during this period.

CAPOEIRA SEEDS

Learning in the Seeds class is based around the importance of play and story-telling. Kids learn to love movement and to understand their body in relation to their world.

Everyone is welcome!

Both Lee and Mariana are really passionate about the art-form and culture and it translates through to the whole group creating a friendly and fun atmosphere with plenty of positive energy. As for the Capoeira itself, it's a great workout and will improve flexibility, strength and general body conditioning. Get involved, everyone is welcome.
