CAPOEIRA ANGOLA WORKSHOPS
FRIDAY JANUARY 27TH, 2023
(kid's workshop 5:30pm to 6:30pm
(Teens/Adults workshop 7pm to 8:30pm)
Capoeira is coming to Henderson County. The game of Capoeira Angola is named for the country credited with its origin, and it is closely connected to, respects, and honors it’s African past. It weaves intricate movements, mental and physical discipline, fight, play, strategy, and philosophy into a rhythmic game of ritual combat. It is played slowly and deliberately, but with humor and joyfulness. The end result is spontaneous, unchoreographed, and is a physical “conversation” between players. Students will learn the fluid, dance-like movements that allow them to improvise in the roda (circle), and learn how to sing and play the accompanying instruments.
Long (comfortable) pants will be required and a shirt with sleeves that will tuck in well, clean tennis shoes or sneakers. Shorts or tank tops will not be accepted
