Capoeira classes for adults
Capoeira is an inspiring artform that attracts people from all ages and backgrounds! Its unique fusion of dance, fight, music and culture means there is something for everyone to enjoy. If any aspect of capoeira intrigues you, come along and give it a go.
“I found capoeira as something where I could express myself totally as it combines my love of music, dance, acrobatics, combat and sense of play – and much more.” Designer, female, age 29
When and where?
Our capoeira classes take place in community centres around London and the South East. The classes are taught by Mestre Fantasma (Simon Atkinson) and his students. Through years of teaching, Mestre Fantasma has developed innovative teaching methods that inspire and motivate people from all backgrounds. The class starts with exercises to music that challenge your coordination using movements from different dance styles. This helps mobilise joints and raise body temperature. Then we move on to the basic steps of capoeira that are after combined into a pair training sequence.
“It is rare to get such insight into yourself, and sometimes it is difficult to accept certain aspects of what you find, but capoeira celebrates everybody’s strengths and weaknesses, which is a very liberating concept!” Doctor, female, 32
