Our first Sunday Salon will feature the Minnesota Capoeira Academy.
There will be an interactive and high-energy performance in the round from 7-8 p.m.. The capoeiristas will take a brief break, after which there will be an exclusive AWE Supporter-only Question and Answer session from 8:15-8:45 p.m..
But what is capoeira (cap-oh-EHR-a)?
Capoeira is a Brazilian martial art that is over 400 years old, combining elements of self-defense, dance, music, and acrobatics. The roots of capoeira are found in the African slaves brought to Brazil.
