Guy Mason: Family Capoeira

Submitted by Cornelia Bell, Guy Mason Recreation Center

Family Capoeira is an integrative fitness program for families and individuals that combines capoeira, the Afro-Brazilian martial art, with strength, flexibility, and endurance exercises. Accessible for all ages, this fun class engages everyone in the music, cultural history, and physical play of capoeira. 

Participants will learn the foundational movements of capoeira and practice applying them in a real roda, or game, with a partner. Specially customized to be a dynamic, intergenerational experience for all, Family Capoeira will get the whole family moving their bodies and feeling great too!

All ages welcome. Free and open to the public.

This program is facilitated by The Family Dances. For more information, contact (202) 213-2970 or or follow @thefamilydances.
