Performance: On the Stage & in the Classroom – Capoeira Angola

Artist: Multiple Artists

Type: Performance: On the Stage & in the Classroom

Professional Performance and accompanying classroom workshops. Capoeira Angola, a traditional Afro-Brazilian art form, appeals to many senses with beautiful and acrobatic movements, singing, and music, using traditional Brazilian instruments such as the Berimbau (made of a gourd and one string) and Pandeiros (tambourines). Performers will demonstrate a traditional capoeira circle called a roda and dance and sing along to the beats of the Berimbau. Students will learn about the Afro-Brazilian culture and the history of how Afro-Brazilian slaves achieved freedom through the art of Capoeira, as well as basic Capoeira rhythms and steps. The songs are call and response and audience members are encouraged to sing along.
