CAPOEIRA

Aspire to have fun and move better

OUR TEACHING STYLE

There is always a method to the madness

STRENGTHEN PREREQUISITE ABILITIES

BUILD MOVEMENT SEQUENCES

IMPROVISATION AND GOING BEYOND

A 60 minute class at Dendê Arts starts with warming up each joint and then moves into an intense workout that combines strength, flexibility, and acrobatics. New and classic Brazilian beats take youre mind off of work and into a flow state that helps you move with rhythm and agility. Our classes emphaize traditional Capoeira movements as well as clear progressions for those new to the sport. The goal for each class is to make sure that you feel challenged, not lost, and that every class presents a new obstacle that you can work on at home. Welcome to the best part of your day.

GREETINGS FROM CALADO

Founder of Dendê Arts

When I first saw Capoeira, I was completely blown away by the teacher and the students doing what seemed like the impossible. They looked like superheroes! At the time, I didn't think about the fitness, the freedom, or the global network of friends I would gain. I just "ooooooo-ed" and "aaaaaaaaa-ed" because I thought of how cool it would be to moved like these guys. I started teaching Capoeira in 2016 at Google Inc. In California. With my teacher's blessings, I started with just 1 class a week and 2 students. Before long, I was teaching multiple classes a week with 20+ students per class! I never knew how much I loved teaching until then and I'm so excited to bring that same passion to New York City newbies who have never thought it was possible for them to throw high kicks, do cartwheels, and set free their creative talents.

For most, the idea of getting a great workout while dancing, playing music, and learning a martial art seemed too good to be true.
