What Is Capoeira?

Capoeira is internationally popular with women, men, and children, as an exciting and fulfilling way to stay fit. Capoeira is a blend of dance, self-defense, acrobatics, and music. It is one of the most complete workouts and fitness programs that develops strength, flexibility, coordination, balance, rhythm, agility, reflexes, endurance, and so much more. Capoeira develops the mind, body, and spirit, and gets more enjoyable the longer one practices.


Created by enslaved Africans in Brazil, Capoeira is a self-defense disguised as a dance. Influenced by a blend of dances from diverse African cultures, Capoeira was practiced as a hidden, playful game, to fool the masters of the enslaved.
