Capoeira:
Roots of the Dance Fight Game
with Colin Van Ert

Sunday, November 22nd
1:00 - 3:30pm

In this immersive workshop you will be introduced to the Brazilian Martial art of Capoeira, a fusion of dance, fight and music, as well as Yama Yoga’s newest class.

Capoeira transcends the boundaries of traditional martial arts.  It offers an environment for dancers, fighters, musicians and artists while ultimately creating union and community.  Its movements build a strong, flexible, and coordinated body while its elements of music and history build camaraderie among those that play the jogo, or “game of capoeira”.

Led by Graduado Gafanhoto (Colin Van Ert) of Capoeira Nagô Milwaukee, this workshop will give you everything you need to start a new practice in capoeira.  It will review fundamental movements and practices, review history and philosophy and allow a lot of room for “playing” and having fun in your own body again.

This workshop is for anyone interested in learning this unique art form.  There is no skill or experience level required.  Capoeira is for all who seek it out!"
