Hello and welcome to our capoeira-moving event !
What is capoeira?
Some call it a dance, some call it a martial-art,
I know, I often call it a game of chess, but with bodies.
Capoeira can be all and more than that, yet by origins is an Afro-Brazillian martial art that combines elements of music, dance and acrobatics.
Isn't it difficult?
Capoeira can be challenging in many ways, but the benefits from its movements can be reaped when it is funny, easy and relaxing.
Showing kids (and adults, who are more than welcome) that they can feel good about being active, without forcing any results is key for their well-being, motivation, self-esteem AND their trainers.
What are we going to do?
We will be respectful to the ways our body feels. Starting slowly and probably continuing the same way, we will pay attention to it - less with words (especially not with Croatian words) and more with funny faces, mimics and simple exercises. We will jump over and roll under each other, see where that takes us and where we wanna go, and move there sideways.
If you feel like this event might suit you or your kids, come and join us in Vestigium on the 14th of April before noon. There are going to be a lot of other activities and fresh air, so don't miss it!
