Capoeira Therapy Sessioncapoeiratherapy

Price Center Dance Room

Burned out? Exhausted by school, work, activism, or society at large? Join us for an evening of fitness, music, self-expression, and self-care via capoeira, a Brazilian martial art (No experience required). What is Capoeira? Capoeira is a martial art that was created by African slaves who were brought to Brazil by Portuguese colonists. Because they were not allowed to fight, the slaves made their martial art look like a dance, creating capoeira's distinct dance-like form. In this program we will learn basic movements, learn music, and play capoeira! Snacks and water provided! Please wear comfortable work-out clothes, but jeans work too. For more information and to RSVP, contact UCSD Capoeira at capoeirasungods@gmail.com.
