Capoeira provides physical fitness for children, ages 4 and up. It is intended to be a no- to low-contact martial art that helps children with gross motor planning and gross motor skills.

Children must be inBarro Vermelho’s official uniform by the second class, which may be purchased at the academy or on line in the Square Market.

Children will also learn maculele (a dance done hitting sticks against your partner’s sticks), samba, capoeira instruments, and Portuguese through this fun, interactive class. Participants must pre-register for a session; session fees may be pro-rated if starting mid-session.
