after school club - Minerva Primary Academy
From Wednesday 12 May 2021, we will now offer a Capoeira after school club in Minerva Primary Academy.
Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian martial art created by slaves in Brazil. Capoeira has a strong cultural component, classes incorporate elements of kicks, escapes, acrobatics, music and singing.
Here is a sneak peak of what our kids capoeira classes look like!
Capoeira will help your child build strength and flexibility, they will learn to work as a team, how to be good training partners but also grow self-confidence and be respectful to each others. They will also learn another language through capoeira songs (Portuguese) and learn history about the Afro-Brazilian culture.
But most of it, they will have fun!
Capoeira is a very rich martial arts, originally illegal in Brazil for many years but not popular all over the world!
