Absolute Beginners

Every month a new Absolute Beginner Series begins.

Absolute Beginner Series meets on Mondays (8:30pm) & Thursdays (8pm)

The cost of the series is $120 if paid in advance or $135 if paid on the first day of class — this includes one free Raízes do Brasil Capoeira group t-shirt. Participants are allowed up to two make-ups that can be redeemed by attending the ongoing Beginners classes.

AbsBegFlyer Sign up for Absolute Beginners today. If you are an adult who has never played capoeira before, we suggest you register for our Absolute Beginners Series. The series of classes, for those new to Raízes do Brasil Capoeira, meets twice weekly for 4 weeks for a total of 8 classes. The classes focus on stretching, conditioning, the fundamental movements of capoeira, kicks, dodges, light acrobatics and roda practice. The series provides an excellent foundation for entering our regular, ongoing classes and an introduction to the art, music and history of capoeira. If you have always been curious about capoeira and wanting to learn more in an environment designed exclusively for newcomers, this is the class for you!
