Capoeira workshops for primary and secondary schools | Red Panda Workshops
Capoeira Dancers are also available to run workshops and lessons within schools. Association of Capoeira Engenho da Rainha (ACER) has been providing Capoeira lessons in schools for 6 years. All our instructors are CRB checked and have years of experience of working with children and young adults.
Capoeira is a fusion of fitness, acrobatics, self-defense, dance and music. Capoeira has been recently popularised in ‘Harry Potter’, ‘Blade’, ‘Ocean’s 12’, ‘Mission Impossible 2’, ‘Cat Woman’, MTV Popmusic Videos and even Play Station games. This recent popular exposure means Capoiera can has been able to enthuse a wide range of students, even those previously uninterested in physical education.
Each Capoeira workshop consists of:
10-15 min warm up and stretches (with games sometimes)
Kicks (no contact)
Combination of movements
RODA (when 2 people perform together the movements to live Capoeira music)
Students will have the opportunity to learn about the music, history and language (Brazilian Portuguese) of Capoeira whilst improving fitness and agility. Capoeira provides a platform for personal achievement, improving self-esteem and creativity.
Introducing Capoeira to your school’s physical education plan allows the introduction of cultural variety and exciting diversity. One workshop will usually run for two hours.
