Bruno CavernaDancing Capoeira
‘roda’ for everyone
Capoeira is a Brazilian art form that mixes dance with combat, acrobatics with rhythm, and poetry with self-expression. It is celebrated as a ritual activity in a circular area called "roda”. This workshop welcomes people of all types to take their very first steps in Capoeira. In a friendly atmosphere everyone will be invited to interact and communicate with each other in unusual ways, sometimes in dynamic group situations, at other times through partnering exercises. The foundation is playfulness; the most important thing is not what you are able to perform, but how to enjoy yourself the most within your own possibilities and capacities.
What is most special about Bruno's class is that it doesn’t focus on learning the correct steps and form, but is more about the very essence of Capoeira; improvising, playing, and sharpening our instinct, sensitivity, and awareness of our partners. To come to a state beyond thinking, where our own bodies can teach and surprise one another by reinventing transitions, movements, and connections that may have seemed impossible before.
