Capoeira is a unique martial art that combines elements of fight,dance,drama,theatre and acrobatics. It is an urban ritual played in a circle to the sound of ancient rhythms created on traditional instruments. 
In this master class we will explore the connection between the Music and the Movements in Capoeira. Mestre Cueca has been traveling around the world and teaching for over 20 years. With unique insights and playful dynamics he will lead you on a journey to enhance you perception and focus your attention to the music when you play.
