About the Intro to Capoeira Course

Practitioners “play” Capoeira for various personal reasons; as a way to free the mind, body, and soul. In addition, Capoeira is a great tool to release tension, improve balance, strengthen muscles, and improve flexibility. Capoeira has become a part of the global community and I designed this class with performers in mind, after years of teaching in Latin America, the U.S., Europe, and Asia.

During the eight-week course, students will explore body awareness through Capoeira music, percussion, and call and response chants. The course is specifically designed to release body tension while connecting with the inner self, physically, emotionally, and spiritually. We will be exploring movement in relation to the four fundamental elements of nature: earth, water, air, and fire.

As we immerse ourselves in the world of Capoeira, I will help you free and connect with your body through a variety of challenging movements. I am committed to creating a safe and mindful environment in which each participant will be worked with according to her or his individual focus and goals.

This course features eight live 3-hour sessions: 

What to Expect:

  • Immerse yourself in Capoeira and dive into the basics
  • Explore movement and learn how it relates to the four fundamental elements (earth, water, air, and fire).
  • Focus on stretching and strengthening
  • Improve your ability to stay connected to the moment during performance

What’s the Difference Between an Auditor and a Participant?

All courses in our Performance Programs include two levels of participation: Auditor and Participant. Auditors listen to and watch live class sessions, but don’t participate and interact with the instructor/other students. Auditing is great for students who want to experience a course without participating. Auditors can watch live sessions, access on-demand replays of live classes and have access to course materials. 

Participants, on the other hand, attend live classes and interact with instructors and other students. In addition, participants can access class recordings, course materials and contact instructors.

Will I Earn a Certificate or Course Credit?

No. Our Performance Program courses are taught by master instructors, coaches and other arts professionals, and not affiliated with a partner university. If you’re interested in earning a certificate or joining a degree-earning course, explore our University Programs.

Who Is My Instructor?

Choose the Instructor tab to learn more about the instructor for your class. All of our Performance Program instructors are in-demand coaches with decades of industry experience. Study with the best!

Who Is This Course For? Are There Prerequisites?

No. There are no prerequisites. However, our Performance Program courses are designed primarily for intermediate and advanced actors, dancers and performers. If you’re unsure if you’re ready for a course, contact an EMERGE learning advisor.

How Do I Enroll in the Course?

To enroll, select “Register for Course” on the course details page. Then, create an account and select which course and participation level you prefer for that course, e.g. Auditor/Participant. Finally, complete checkout.

After successfully enrolling, the EMERGE team will be in touch to help you access course materials and answer any questions.

Am I Required to Attend Live Classes?

Participants should plan to attend weekly live course sessions. If the student can’t make a course, arrangements should be made with the instructor.

Another option: If you can’t make a course’s regular weekly live sessions, consider participating as an Auditor and viewing class recordings each week.

Do I Need Special Technology?

Our classes are live webinars offered via Zoom. All you need to attend is a stable internet connection and a connected device. Students may wish to upgrade audio or web cam, but this is not required.

When Is Tuition Due?

Courses must be paid in full prior to enrollment. Enrollment is open on a first-come, first-served basis. Our courses do fill up quickly; if you’re interested in participating, enroll as soon as you can.
