Currently our adult classes are geared towards all levels. Below is a description of what to expect: 

Adults  - Multi-Level Class
This class is designed for ALL LEVELS - the beginner, intermediate and advanced. Students will typically warm up together with basic moves, separate in groups according to their level and regroup for a "roda" (the circle in which capoeira is played). The class will likely include both movement and music and may include drills, sequences, takedowns, acrobatics, partner and individual work. Every class is a little different to keep it lively and fresh! 

Every season, we may change up our class schedule, add a class or change the time, to accommodate changing needs of our group. We always appreciate the feedback and input from our students!
