Growing the Voices of Our Future

In a joint effort to get students involved with the Children Services Council’s 2019 Broward AWARE!

Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art that combines elements of dance, acrobatics, and music. It was developed by African slaves in Brazil at the beginning of the 16th century. Capoeira will improve your strength, flexibility, and overall fitness. I do Capoeira to help me stay fit and this is one of my favorite after-school activities. In the photo is my capoeira instructor, Matthew Allen.
