PS4 Capoiera Program - 2015

Teaching Artists Alegria & Chuvisco with Catelina.
Congratulations to the members of this year's Capoeira Program!  This year, 26 students from 2nd to 5th grade learned the Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, sports, and music known as Capoeira. With instruction from teaching artists Chuvisco and Alegria, students were taught the history of this form of martial arts, its complex moves and kicks, as well as a variety of songs in Portugese. This program promotes disciple and self esteem, as well as cultural awareness.  Click here for more information about Capoeira.

Thanks to Teaching Artists Chuvisco and Alegria for making sure our young Capoiera dancers learn and have fun!  Special thanks to DanceBrazil's founder and Master Teacher, Jelon Vieira and Executive Director Patty Bryan for continuing to be great partners in the education our students for the fourth year in a row.  To see photos and videos from past Capoeira programs at PS4, click here!  To see photos and videos from this year's program, click below!
