Capoeira Classes

This fast growing Brazilian sport is a perfect multilateral training, combining martial arts, dance, acrobatics and music. Capoeira classes provide a positive and dynamic environment for children to explore their talents and enhance their physical and mental abilities, while giving them an outlet to express themselves. At Shanghai Center for Capoeira they believe that Capoeira can help raise an open-minded, self-confident and culturally and physically educated child.

The Librarian
