Capoeira is an Afro-Brazilian art form that combines elements of martial arts, music, and dance. Created in Brazil by slaves with Brazilian native influences probably beginning in the 16th century, it is characterised by quick and complex moves.
Our Capoeira troupe “Ceara” was established in London in 2001 by Mestre Caboclin whose authentic teaching methods have taken Capoeira back to its roots in Ceara. Today The Capoeira Ceara School teaches 6 days a week with over 500 members stationed all across the world and with schools in Brazil, England, New Zealand and soon in Norway. The group have extensive experience in performing for corporate events, charity and on television.
Typically capoeira is performed to Afro Dance played on live drums but as it’s a freestyle performance it can be performed to pretty much any music; from classical to rock. Choreographed acts can however be performed and prepared from scratch if required.
