Our adult classes are 1.5 hours long. They begin with stretching, warm-up and strengthening exercises—which is why it is very important to arrive on time for class and avoid injuries. The training portion of the class focuses on repetition of Capoeira movements to build strength, form and the endurance for the art. Classes end with a roda (capoeira circle). Portuguese language practice is an important aspect of class; we learn numbers, movements, songs and basic vocabulary while we train.
After completing our Intro to Capoeira Series, these classes cater to those with 0-4 years of capoeira or anyone looking to strengthen their capoeira foundation. Physical conditioning, individual skills, drill combinations and musicality are the focus of these classes and are required before joining the All-Levels classes.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
A: Neither could 90% of the people who started Capoeira, and look at them now! Nobody learned to walk without crawling first. Our method is dedicated to improving your coordination, strength, and mobility. Start today, and in a year when you look back, you'll be glad you did.
A: Make sure to bring two things! Water and comfortable clothing. Yoga pants, sweat pants, basketball shorts are all appropriate. The key is that you can move freely.
A: Every year in Capoeira we hold our Batizado, meant to introduce new students to Capoeira and graduate students to their next chord. Chords mark a student's progression in the same way that belts do in Karate - but be caution about how much value you give a chord, because the only thing the chord can do when you're playing Capoeira, is keep your pants up!
The chords go...
Student Chords: Green > Green/Yellow > Yellow > Yellow/Blue >
Teacher chords: Blue > Blue/Yellow/Green > Blue/Yellow/Green/White
Mestre Chords: Green/White > Yellow/White > Blue/White > White
