Adults will discover one of the most enjoyable workouts available in capoeira classes. Students build strength, increase stamina and flexibility as they learn capoeira’s exciting kicks and acrobatic movements. Studying capoeira is a rich cultural experience as students also learn Portuguese language, about Brazilian history and culture, and how to play the traditional instruments used in making the music of capoeira. Forget the gym. Get in the best shape of your life and have a great time doing it.

Intermediate/Advanced Classes

Mondays & Wednesdays at 7:15-8:15pm at Several Dancers Core (Intermediate Class)
Tuesdays 8:15 at Decatur Recreation Center &Thursdays at 8:15 PM at Atlanta’s United Tae Kwon Do (Advanced Class)

This program is at the heart of our mission at the Academy. We believe that some of the most valuable lessons a student learns through capoeira go beyond the physical movements we train in class. In the leadership program, students enhance their training with a curriculum designed to help them get the most out of their capoeira experience while preparing them for leadership opportunities
