Capoeira Warm-Up Performance Equal parts music, dance and acrobatics, Aché Brasil infuses the culture, traditions and music of Brazil in a spectacle of movement and color.
Capoeira Workshop Capoeira is a Brazilian art form, which combines dance, music, and acrobatics with martial arts. Known as the secret dance of Brazil, capoeira is an astonishing display of acrobatics, breath-taking kicks and self-defence tactics performed to the music of the Berimbau (an ancient stringed bow-like instrument) and drums. Come try it for yourself in this fun-filled, high-energy workshop.
