No martial arts experience required. Just show up in comfortable athletic pants, t-shirt and athletic/canvas shoes. It's fun, and it’s a great workout--flexibility, core, strength, and cardio all in one.
The UIUC Capoeira Club hosts various Capoeira Angola, dance, music workshops, concerts, socials, and events throughout the school year. They also have instruments, so you can learn to play them and sing some capoeira songs in Portuguese. Come experience some Brazilian culture for yourself!
The Capoeira Angola Center is located in downtown Urbana, above Mirabella bakery, and across the street from comic book, record, and skateboard shops. They're a 10-minute walk from the corner of Springfield and Lincoln, and directly on the 50E Green bus line; get off at the Lincoln Square garage.
Look forward to seeing everyone! If you have any questions, please feel free to email us or call.
