What is Capoeira?

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian  cultural manifestation. It has music, dance, fight, movement, Portuguese language and community as its core. It is an holistic and complete art form that respects the individual forms of manifestation and self-expression, all with respect for the group.

Capoeira Luta de Bailarino (musica baseada em poema de Dia Gomes)

"Capoeira e luta de bailarino, danca de gladiadores,duelo de camaradas

Capoeira e jogo, e bailado

Capoeira e disputa, simbioze perfeita de forca e ritmo, poesia e agilidade.

Capoeira e um artista.

Capoeira e um atleta, e um jogador, e um maestro, e um poeta."

Capoeira Dancers' Fight (music inspired by a Dias Gomes Poem)

"Capoeira is a dancer's fight, a Gladiators dance, a comrades duel.
Capoeira is a game and a dance.
Capoeira is dispute, perfect symbiosis for strenght and rythm, poetry and agility.
Capoeira is an artist.
Capoeira is an athlete, is a player, is a conductor, is a poet."
