Welcome to the Groovy Kids Club! My name is Ms. Yvonne and I'm looking forward to moving and grooving with your learners. In this course, the students will learn about Capoeira from Brazil via music and dance. You can expect a high-energy fusion of dance, martial arts, and acrobatics. This is a fun introduction to the basic movements of Capoeira modified for children. Learners will get a full workout while they practice body coordination, awareness, and mobility exercises.

Students will learn basic capoeira theory & fundamental moves. They will understand the concept of a roda and how to play inside one. In addition to learning the physical aspects of the game, they'll also learn a few Portuguese words.
I lived in Bahia, Brasil for 5 years and speak Brazilian Portuguese semi-fluently. I studied Capoeira with the group Filhos de Zumbi in Itacaré and received my first cord in 2012. I am a 600 hr Registered Yoga Teacher with certification in Yoga for Children & Teens.
Students are asked to wear clothing comfortable to move in. For example joggers, leggings, t-shirts, etc. Ideally, nothing too baggy as it will be difficult to see the motions. T-shirts should be fitted or tucked into pants to avoid shirts coming up during inversions. Preferably no dresses or skirts unless there are appropriate shorts underneath. Please keep an easy-access water bottle nearby during class. Please have an open space of approximately 6 X 8 ft on the floor for the learners to move around freely. I recommend a carpeted area, yoga mat, or gymnastics mat.
We regularly practice balancing and acrobatic exercises. Please have open space approximately 6 X 8 ft on the floor for the learners to move around freely. I recommend a carpeted area, yoga mat, or gymnastics mats. *I remind students in class that these moves should only be used when practicing capoeira. Capoeira should not be used to harm another person.
