Capoeira Angola: Movement and Music

Teaching Artist: Christopher Alex Chablé

Capoeira serves as an introduction to Afro-Brazilian Cultures. Students are also introduced to cultural concepts of Brazil, Brazilian history, and the Portuguese language. Classes are taught over a period of 8 weeks. Classes are divided into four parts: 1) Stretching and Warmups, 2) Movement training, 3) practical use of movements through partnered work, and 4) music. This class culminates into the performative event of the RODA, which incorporates holistically all the students would have learned: martial arts, dance, ritualized movement, song, and music.
