Kids Capoeira Classes

Sign up for affordable kids capoeira classes at Jefferson Elementary in South Minneapolis. Classes operate in 2 month ongoing sessions. Check the schedule posted below for the next available session.

While there are many extra-curricular activities available for kids today, Capoeira has the potential to offer a greater range of experience.  Our classes teach not only the martial art and game of Capoeira but also the music, language, and culture.  Mestre Senna promotes structure and learning in a fun setting. 

What your child will learn:

  • Movements of Capoeira including kicks, blocks, ginga, cartwheels, and handstands
  • Playing the Pandeiro (hand drum), Clapping and Singing
  • Basic Portuguese
  • Respect for other cultures and other people
  • The joy of working to achieve goals

In order to provide the best experience possible, Capoeira Kids classes are for ages 5-10.  

Getting started:

Students should wear athletic or sweatpants (no shorts) and a t-shirt for class. Shoes can be worn but most students train bare foot (no socks.) Find the next session and plan to attend the first day. You can check out a class mid-session but we prefer you start from the first week.
