Can I observe a class?

Quiet observers are always welcome.


It is best to contact us to let us know you are coming so we can let you know of the best class to watch.

I'm not in the best shape. Will I still be able to play Capoeira?

Yes, we can scale the class for any level. You will need to be prepared for a workout and to be sore for at least the first few weeks.

What can I expect in my first beginner class?

Be prepared to work out and sweat! Capoeira is a very physical activity. The normal class structure starts with warm-up, leads into training according to level. Please make extra time to stretch before and after your classes.
